EDUCATIONAL OUTREACH: During the fall 2011 Board of Trustees meeting, the Board approved changing the “NEA Wonder of Life Exhibit” line item to “Educational Outreach.” This change allows Teachers Saving Children® to utilize “The Wonder of Life” exhibit more extensively than we have in the past. Thank you to our supporting members for helping Teachers Saving Children® to spread the pro-life message at events like those highlighted below.
During the October 2017, the Board of Trustees voted to participate in a number of events during the 2017-2018 fiscal year.
ILLINOIS RETIRED TEACHERS ASSOCIATION CONFERENCE: On Monday, October 30, 2017, Charles Hlavaty, Board of Trustees member, attended the Illinois Retired Teachers Association Conference. He volunteered time at a Teachers Saving Children® table where he handed out information and shared our cause with retired teachers. He had many opportunities to speak with retired teachers who believe in the sanctity of life.
STUDENTS FOR LIFE OF AMERICA CONFERENCE 2018: Jan Luke and John Gordon represented Teachers Saving Children® at the 2018 Students for Life East Coast conference in Upper Marlboro, MD on Saturday, January 20, 2018. As usual, much attention was drawn to our display by our fetal models and highly realistic "newborn." Donations were accepted for books, T-shirts, and other materials in support of our Educational Outreach Fund. About ten students planning careers in education were recruited for new membership.

WALK FOR LIFE: WEST COAST 2018: The 14th annual Walk for Life West Coast and Info Faire were held on Saturday, January 27, 2018 in San Francisco. Teachers Saving Children® was well represented at the Info Faire where more than 50 pro-life groups, ministries, and organizations from all over the United States were set up. For three and a half hours, hundreds of people of all ages stopped by our table to ask about Teachers Saving Children®, our mission, and ways by which lessons can infuse the message of respect for the sanctity of human life at all stages. The response was extremely positive. The message of our advocacy for human life was very well received as people were pleasantly surprised to hear that there are pro-life public school teachers who could actually infuse the pro-life message into the public school curriculum.

NEA EXPO: The Board of Trustees made a decision to return to the NEA Expo in 2018. On June 30 and July 1, 2018, volunteers will be in Minneapolis MN to share the message of LIFE with thousands of educators. The purpose of our exhibit booth at this convention is to promote and provide educational classroom materials, especially for science and health teachers. All materials will be age-appropriate, positive, colorful, and scientifically accurate regarding both the wonder of life in utero and after birth.
