Helping Children Cope with Traumatic Events

The confusing and frightening emotions that can follow a traumatic event or natural disaster can be even more pronounced in children.  Whether they directly experience the traumatic event or were repeatedly exposed to horrific media images after the fact, we need to make sure that we know how to best help children cope with these events.

DSEA Elections

DSEA will be conducting elections for the offices of Treasurer, Executive Board (by county), and State Delagate to the NEA Representative Assembly.  Petitions and timelines are now available.

Professional Development through DSEA

DSEA offers a robust Professional Development curriculum to members, helping them build and improve upon skills that will make them a more effective educator.

Members interested in one of the Professional Development courses in the catalog should contact their local association leader.  The local association leaders will then contact DSEA to let us know of interest from their members for a specific course.  If/when there is a sufficient level of attendees, DSEA will schedule and conduct the PD course(s) requested.

DSEA Joins with Delaware Division of Public Health to Offer Opioid Addiction Professional Development

Delaware is not immune to the national crisis of opioid addiction and death.

In fact, there were 308 fatal drug overdoses, many of them from opioids, in 2016, up significantly from 229 in 2015.

These sobering facts are why the Delaware Division of Public Health and the Delaware State Education Association (DSEA) have come together to offer professional development training for school nurses focused on opioid addiction and treatment.

The most recent training was held on Thursday, September 14th at the DSEA offices in Newark.

Help Fellow NEA Members Affected by Hurricane Harvey

A Message from NEA President Lily Eskelsen Garcia
Being part of NEA means being part of a family—a huge and caring family—that reaches out to each other when disaster strikes. 
Since Hurricane Harvey made landfall on August 25th, Houston, Rockport, and other communities (totaling 50 counties) have been swamped by the most extreme rain event in U.S. history. 

DSEA Human & Civil Rights Awards
