New SAISD Teachers, Welcome to SAISD

San Antonio AllianceUncategorized

Ask Us HowTo all of our new SAISD teachers, congratulations on being hired by the San Antonio Independent School District! The San Antonio Alliance of Teachers and Support Personnel is affiliated with both the National Education Association (NEA) and the American Federation of Teachers (AFT) at the national level and the Texas State Teachers Association (TSTA) and the Texas AFT at the state level. Teachers in SAISD have elected the Alliance as their official representative. We are a professional organization dedicated to achieving REAL RESULTS for our students and our community.

As you take part in the district’s Rising Stars Conference August 1st-4th, you will see many faces of our Alliance. We are a multidimensional organization that not only offers legal defense and liability protection but also an array of resources to assist your growth and development as an educator. We look forward to meeting you at the conference.

Come see us at the Rising Stars Conference: We invite you to come and talk to us any morning before the conference begins and/or on Tuesday, August 2nd in the vendor area. We will be the folks in the blue shirts! We will be having raffles, giveaways for new members, and a FREE LUNCH for all new teachers. The lunch will take place on Tuesday, August 2nd from 12:00pm-1:00pm at Lanier High School, which is across the street from the conference.

Ongoing Support: In addition to the activities during the Rising Stars Conference, the Alliance is an ongoing resource to our members. Just ask your colleagues. We are the largest organization in the district by far with our 2500 educator members in SAISD advocating for REAL RESULTS for our students. We achieve this by offering numerous tools and professional learning opportunities to educators, such as the Foundations of Effective Teaching course—a series of sessions to help you hone your skills in classroom management and effective teaching strategies. You will hear more about this course at the Rising Stars Conference.

If you choose to become a part of our Alliance, all new teachers will receive $100 for joining. If you have any questions, please feel free to call our office at (210) 225-7174 or email us at
