Dear UFT Speech Chapter Members,

Currently there are approximately 2,700 speech improvement teachers and speech language pathologists working for the New York City Department of Education in New York City. There are approximately 2,700 speech improvement teachers and speech language pathologists working for the New York City Department of Education. We work in different areas of the city and with a variety of different populations. But we all do a very important job. Whether we are in a regional school district, citywide program or high school, each of us works to ensure that all children get the appropriate speech and language services recommended on their individual education plans (IEPs). As part of the IEP teams, we also help to determine the best speech services for our students.

This is a very difficult job. It takes skill, dedication and the right balance to make sure that children are receiving what they really need to do their best. We at the speech chapter are here to support you.

Fraternally,
Mindy Karten Bornemann
