Write for SB

Would you like to write for Something Better?


Something Better is looking for teachers to write features about their experiences in Missouri public schools.

Perhaps you have an innovative program that you created to address your students' needs. Feature topic ideas include: the successes and challenges of teaching, survival tips for beginning teachers, union involvement, using technology for learning, and any other insights authors can provide about working in today's classrooms.

Tell Something Better readers your story and how they might learn from your experiences. Authors will receive $200 for articles published in Something Better.

Please send your ideas or features to Debra Beckman, MNEA communications director, at debra.beckman@mnea.org.

Share your story

Even though we are not at school supporting Missouri students, members continue to help every day during this crisis. MNEA wants to share your stories as we struggle through the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic.

We are hearing about members who are continuing to care for their students by

  • volunteering at school district Grab & Go meal distribution centers and food drives
  • providing child care for essential medical staff
  • shopping for the elderly so they don’t have to leave the safety of their homes

Your stories help show that educators don’t stop caring. Please send your stories with pictures to MNEA at coronavirus@mnea.org, so we can share them. You can post to social media, making sure you tag @MissouriNEA and use the hashtags  #MNEAheroes and  #MNEAprotects.
