Atlantic County Council of Education Associations

serving over 7,000 educators and support professionals in Atlantic County


President’s Message


On Sunday, June 1st, ACCEA held its annual Retirement luncheon at Greate Bay Country Club in Somers Point. Over 70 retiring teachers and educational support professionals were honored as they retired with anywhere between ten and fifty-four ( fifty-four!!!) years of experience. In addition, another one hundred school employees retired county-wide, but were unable to join in the celebration. Congratulations go out to all our retirees and best wishes for a long and healthy retirement for all of them.

Our special thanks go out to NJEA President Wendell Steinhauer and his wife, Mary, for taking time from an extremely busy schedule ( he was in New Mexico at a conference the day before)  join us to honor our retirees.

With the arrival of June, many of us turn our thoughts  to the last day of school, the beach, reading what YOU want to read, travel, sleeping late, or whatever you do for rest and relaxation during the summer months. I look forward to attending the NEA’s Representative Assembly with the other thirty-or-so delegates from Atlantic County. I would like to thank all of those who give up a week of their  summer vacation to represent our 7,000 members at the Assembly. Look for convention updates during the first week of July at the Atlantic County Council of Education Associations Facebook page or on Twitter @ACCEANJ.

Have a great summer everyone! For those of you an twelve month schedules, enjoy the peace and quiet that comes from not having the rest of us around to annoy you.
