ESSEX COUNTY MEMBERS MAKING HEADLINES

We would like to congratulate our very own 1st VP Kim Scott-Hayden on being named NJEA Educational Support Professional (ESP) of the 2020-2021 School Year!

We are excited to have you as one of our leaders that advocates for all

ESPs & Teachers! 

Kimberly Scott-Hayden, an inventory control clerk in East Orange, was the first ESP to serve as an NJEA Executive Committee member for Essex County. She is the President of East Orange Service and Maintenance Association and 1st Vice President of Essex County EA and is an NEA Director. Kim has led a series of professional development opportunities for other ESPs.

In April 2020, East Orange Service and Maintenance Association was the first local in the state of New Jersey to host an ESP professional development weekend conference that was free to members. It was a full weekend of professional development and engagement around NEA’s professional growth continuum.

We would like to Congratulate our 2nd VP Chris Cannella on making Insider NJ’s 2020 Insider OUT 100: LGBT Power List!

Here is an important message from our President

Like most Americans, I have been heartbroken and angry over the events of the last several days. On behalf of the twelve thousand members of the Essex County Education Association I would like to express solidarity with our black students and their families who I know are hurting right now.

The ECEA and its members work every day to fight for equity in funding, facilities, opportunities, and educational outcomes for our black students. It is not easy work as institutional racism and poverty are powerful opponents. Today, I reaffirm our commitment to advance the causes of racial and social justice in our classrooms, schools, and communities.

We look forward to the day when our communities and country live up to the promise of equality. Until then, know that we stand with the people who are hurting and with those who are working toward a more perfect union, whether they be leaders of government, law enforcement, faith, or education.

Anthony Rosamilia

President

Essex County Education Association

The ECEA Office will be closed beginning on Monday, March 16th. Sandy will be checking emails and phone messages from home.
