Got Conflict?

Is there a situation between you and a colleague at your workplace that is causing you stress or anxiety? Do you have a dispute with a co-worker that is causing your work or workplace to suffer? CSEA has a Peer Facilitation Cadre that can help you and a coworker identify core issues, find common ground and work for a solution that will resolve these issues. This voluntary cadre consists of trained peer facilitators who will work with you confidentially to help bring about a solution to the disagreement. Please contact your AR or CSEA for additional information.

CSEA Cycling
Balance! We work a LOT! Let's get together outside work and make some space to breathe! Come ride with some fellow members and enjoy the outdoors, enjoy the company, and enjoy yourself. We'll help you connect with other riders who ride at your pace--it's definitely not about racing.

All members and their families are welcome to share in this activity. Spring, summer, and early fall we'll gather in different groups to ride various routes around the area--even mountain biking, if that's your preference. Join in six of these group rides and you will receive a CSEA team jersey (family members who do their six rides are also eligible for a jersey at minimal cost).

Our ambition is for as many of us as possible to ride as a group in the Denver Post's Pedal the Plains September 15-17 (Friday to Sunday). Gorgeous weather, education on the route, and it's on the plains, so you're not climbing passes. Check out the website: http://www.pedaltheplains.com This year's route was announced April 17 and includes the towns of Kersey, Keenesburg, and Brush.

Please join us, and let Joe Schott know (c.schott@d11.org), so we can plan accordingly.


Other Membership Events Coming This Year

Painting Night
Have you ever wanted to go to one of those painting and socializing places, but didn’t want to spend the money? Now is your chance...this is a no cost event! Supplies, food, and drink will be provided.

Grade-In
You’ll be invited to join fellow teachers and CSEA members as we catch up on grading, paperwork and planning, sitting behind a sign that informs the public we are teachers at work.
