Thank you PENC administrators, for working hard to make membership fees affordable. Like most of my teacher colleagues, I initially joined PENC because my principal told me I needed additional insurance coverage and legal representation, in the event of a law suit. A retired principal/friend encouraged me to join PENC, and I’ve been a member ever since. I don’t remember the year I first joined PENC, but I do remember that the reason I joined was because PENC’s membership fee for a teacher was less than half the cost of it’s competitor’s. Thank you again for working hard to keep PENC’s membership fees low. Knowing I had the support of PENC gave me great peace of mind throughout my career as a teacher/coach, assistant principal, principal, and transportation director.
