Choice.  Sounds nice, right?  That’s why New Classroom Start Up Grant winner Tiffany Jessen, a second grade teacher at Centennial Elementary in Nampa, ID, joined NWPE.  “My primary reason for joining NWPE was choice. I didn't want my money to go towards politics that I did not agree with. I also appreciate NWPE’s much lower cost. As a new teacher, I don't make much money and much of it has gone to setting up my classroom.   I have appreciated having a choice because I feel that my money should go where my values go. Though I understand that education is political, I don't feel that our union should support political candidates.”
