Marie Blistan, VP, NJEA

The mission of the New Jersey Education Association is to advance and protect the rights, benefits, and interests of members, and promote a quality system of public education for all students. And yes, they work through the Summer months!

Marie is one of those forces in education who never says never, a caring woman who’s devotion to her students and co-workers is evident…don’t take my word for it, tune in and hear for yourself :-)
