The Final Day of the '08 RA

The last day included a great deal of work and an opportunity to say good-bye to outgoing President Reg Weaver.

A special video was put together about Reg and we all enjoyed watching him at work. Reg stayed around for pictures with delegates at the conclusion of the meeting.

Also during the day, we heard from the national teacher of the year, Michael Geisen from Oregon. Michael delivered a humorous and moving speech and education. Based on what I heard, he sounds like a great teacher.

When the RA ended, OEA's NEA Director, Greg Johnson, announced he will be running for a spot on the executive committee. There will be two openings and the election will occur next July in San Diego.
