MSEA President Cheryl Bost joined NEA President Becky Pringle and NEA Secretary/Treasurer Noel Candelaria at the White House recently to celebrate the 2020 and 2021 National Teachers of the Year.
The 2020 award winner, Kansas pre-school educator Tabatha Rosproy, teaches in an intergenerational program based in a retirement community. She is the first pre-school teacher to be honored as National Teacher of the Year. The 2021 awardee, Juliana Urtubey, is an instructional strategist and co-teacher in pre-k through 5th grade in Las Vegas.
“The past year and a half has been a unique and challenging learning experience for those of us in public education. It was wonderful to be among so many positive, forward-looking people, including President and Mrs. Biden who honor and respect our profession,” Bost said.
