  1. TEA Pres. Jason Freed welcomed about 60 attendees (mostly teachers) to this event, including AEA Pres. Joe Thomas and Kristel Foster, TUSD Bd. member. He introduced the Past Presidents of TEA since 1979, and then spoke of the 3 founders of TEA in 1917, who all have schools named after them. Then Jason said that former House legislator Marion Pickens was the Pres. when TEA went on strike in 1978. He said that TEA still has problems today with low salaries and lack of funding for public education. Star cartoonist Dave Fitzsimmons then took the stage and drew caricatures of teachers in elem. , middle, high school and also one who teaches ESL.
