School Committee Campaign

If you live in Newton, and you haven't already, vote for Shawn Fitzgibbons and Kathy Shields on Tuesday, November 2. Building Support for Addressing Racial Disparities in Newton Public Schools


Do you stand behind the following "Push for Specific Actions with Community Support"?

"Hiring more Black teachers;

Strengthening the disciplinary process in response to racist incidents;

Reducing racial disparity in discipline in the schools."

If so, please consider signing this statement put into circulation by Tassy Warren and former Mayor Setti Warren. Join the "effort to build a shared understanding and community support for the difficult, but critical work of ensuring our school system is a place that creates opportunity for all and prepares all of our students with the best possible education and training for the 21st century world they’ll enter."

Mass Child Grants


Mass Child reimburses preK-12 local associations that purchase items for students who are facing financial challenges. For more than 20 years, Mass Child has helped MTA educators ensure that their students have had warm winter clothing, eyeglasses, school supplies and countless other items, making it possible for children to overcome some of the non-educational barriers to learning. And this work continues. If you know of a child or family in need, please contact the NTA office or your building rep.


MTA Early Career Educator Conference Saturday, November 6th


Each fall the MTA New Member Committee hosts a conference with a variety of timely workshops geared toward Educators in their first five years. This year, due to Covid restrictions, this conference will be held virtually. It is a great opportunity to learn and connect with other early career educators in Massachusetts. This conference is open to all members, and prospective members. Participants can certify workshop time, which can be applied to PDPs. This is a great way to engage prospective members and show them what resources are available to them if they join the union! Click here and sign up!
