Comments on a Voice for Educators on the Partnership for Connecticut's Governing Board

National and state AFT leaders today made the following public remarks regarding Jan Hochadel's appointment to serve as a member of the Partnership for Connecticut's governing board:
 

Meeting Members' Workplace Well-Being Needs

AFT Connecticut's professional development (PD) department each fall surveys members of affiliated unions to determine the career advancement and labor leadership courses that would be most relevant and beneficial. The feedback drives a program empowering PreK-12 and higher education professionals, nurses and healthcare staff, and state and municipal employees to make tangible improvements in their work lives. Stress reduction and self-care emerged from the latest results as common goals shared by our diverse membership.
 

Professional Learning Grants to Benefit Educators and their Students

This year's Fund for Teachers (FFT) grants were announced earlier this month and 118 Nutmeggers were selected to embark on self-designed professional learning odysseys this summer. 2016 "Fellows" from our state are set to receive $475,000 in total funding and represent 37 districts, 76 individual schools and include members of seven AFT Connecticut-affiliated unions.
