Tess Canet, White River, SD
My name is Tess Canet. I am a member of the Todd County EA and currently the president. I am also a member of the SDEA Board of Directors for the Plains Unit.
I joined TCEA/SDEA/NEA the first year of my teaching career in 1997. I joined because I knew it was an organization of my peers, who would give me support and encouragement when I needed it.
As a member of the TCEA/SDEA/NEA, I have a voice — locally, state-wide and nationally. My voice is heard through political action such as lobbying for better learning conditions for students and better working conditions for employees of Public Education. There is power in numbers!
