I Teach, I Care
The I Teach, I Care Campaign is a District 13, OSSTF Public Relations Committee initiative which seeks to recognize our members who volunteer their time in the community. This aligns with the PRC mandate which is to publicly raise the profile of Durham’s public high school teachers in addition to organizing events that build positive relationships among the District 13 membership.
The first phase in this campaign is the designing and distributing of free hats with the D13 logo on the front and the “I teach, I care” motto on the back to any teacher who volunteers their time in the community. The only thing we ask in exchange for the hat is your name and the nature of the volunteer work you are doing…and, of course, to hopefully wear the hat! We will feature our members and the good deeds you do to celebrate how much teachers do above and beyond their job.
If you would like a hat, please see your Branch President for a form or click on the link: I Teach, I Care.
