New Teachers

August 2015

Welcome:

As President of the United Teachers of Santa Clara (UTSC), I would like to welcome you to the Santa Clara Unified School District (SCUSD). I am happy that you have decided to begin, or continue, your career in SCUSD. I invite you to become a member of UTSC, which is the local chapter of the California Teachers Association (CTA) and the National Education Association (NEA). As an Active member, you will enjoy the many benefits we are proud to offer.

The UTSC Representative(s) from your site, or your faculty unit (i.e., SLP, Nurses, etc.), will be more than happy to assist you as you start the school year. In the meantime, if you have any questions or need assistance before then, please don’t hesitate to contact me either by calling the UTSC Office at (408) 379-0553 or via e-mail at UnitedTeachersSC@aol.com.

Respectfully,

Michael Hickey, UTSC President
