Reimagining the MTEA
Please consider ways you may want to actively participate in our union in the upcoming school year and sign up now.
Re-imagine MTEA - Teaching and Learning
One key component of reinventing our union is addressing teaching and learning issues - proactively, addressing the real needs of educators. Our classroom-focused initiatives include a new electronic newsletter, Re-Imagine.
Proud MPS Educators
We have profiles of Proud MPS Educators. And there are literally thousands more. Nominations are always welcome and the process is easy.
Highlighting the great work of educators is one of the ongoing components of the MPS Children's Campaign our union launched this spring. Subscribe here for campaign updates.
Requesting a Substitute Teacher
To report an absence and request a substitute teacher, please go to aesopeducation.com or call 1-800-942-3767.
For technical support, pin or ID number, or problems with Aesop, teachers should email firstname.lastname@example.org or call the MPS/Aesop message center at 773-9937.
