Teamwork is an part of quality education. Just ask New Britain high school history teacher Dan Blanchard. He uses that team approach in the classroom and in the school.

“Today we take a team approach more than ever,” says Dan. “I work with a special ed inclusion teacher and a bilingual inclusion teacher and we bounce ideas off each other. Our department team meets with administrators to share ideas and figure out what works best for the students.”

Make sure that teamwork is a part of education reform.

AFT CT (American Federation of Teachers Connecticut) is committed to improving the quality of education for every child in the state. Education reform issues like teacher tenure, teacher certification, teacher evaluations, early childhood education, charter schools, school funding and more need input from all educators. PreK-12 teachers, paraprofessionals and school related personnel are working every day to improve learning and help students to grow. From urban schools in Connecticut, such as Hartford, New Britain, New Haven and Meriden, to suburban schools, such as, Bloomfield, Simsbury and Waterford,  to regional school districts, our members are working to provide quality education.
