New Britain Federation of Paraprofessionals

Helping Fellow Members "Improve their Practice"

As a democratic labor organization, AFT Connecticut adheres to the principle of local unions governed "of members, by members and for members." These values are evident in our professional development (PD) program, which relies less on big name experts and more on trusted colleagues to teach valuable career advancement and labor leadership skills. It is in this cooperative atmosphere that members can share their passion and expertise with each other.
 

Spotlight: Ensuring Special Education Students' Success

Paraeducators are among the most important members of a school's team, particularly when it comes to providing a quality learning experience for children with special needs. Teachers and administrators have become increasingly reliant on their support as students with disabilities and English Language Learners (ELLs) have been "mainstreamed" into the classroom. During the week in which the annual recognition of paraprofessionals is celebrated in Connecticut, we're spotlighting a union member who has dedicated her career to helping students.
