New & Potential Members

Hello PAUSD New Hires,


The Palo Alto Educators Association (PAEA) would like to welcome you to PAUSD.  We are the representative body for all educators in the district.  PAEA performs many functions, the most well known are bargaining on the behalf of members and representing teachers rights.  We hope you will attend the New Teacher Luncheon PAEA will be hosting during your orientation week. We also hope you will consider becoming a valued member of PAEA.  We will have membership from on hand, but if you would like to fill one out ahead of time you can find a fillable PDF at the link below. If you choose to fill it out the form below, please print 4 copies of the first page and sign all four.  One copy for you to keep, you can bring the other three copies to the luncheon.  We only need one copy of the second, optional page.

If you cannot attend the new teacher luncheon you can send the forms to our membership chair, Cheryl Tsuruda, via email or through the district Pony.  You will need to fill the form out, print it, sign it, then scan it back onto your computer in order to email it.  The form is not savable to your device. Email it to Cheryl at or if you send the copies in the Pony address the envelope to Cheryl Tsuruda @ Fairmeadow Elementary School.

The PAEA New Teacher Luncheon will be held on August 2, 2019, at lunchtime. This will be on one of your new teacher district training days.


Teri Baldwin,

PAEA President
