Dear UFT Speech Chapter Members,

It is with great pride that I welcome you to the Speech Chapter website. These pages keep members informed about events, your rights and our accomplishments. Please check in frequently and sign up with the UFT Membership Department (212-598-6855) to receive emails from our chapter and the UFT. As your chapter leader, I am here to support your needs as is the entire UFT. Every UFT borough office is open until 6pm during the school year. Or you may call the UFT's general information number at 212-777-7500 to ask for specific departments to answer your non-speech related questions (i.e. pension, health).                                                       

We hope you'll attend our monthly chapter  meetings. We discuss school issues, answer your individual questions and work together to solve problems. Assistant Chapter Leader Brenda Caquias and I provide union updates, but we're also happy to answer your speech-related questions. If you can't make the meetings, you can always reach us at the speech chapter hotline, at 212-598-7774, Monday through Friday, from 4 to 6 p.m. In addition, you can also send a succinct email to speechchapterleader@uft.org which will be answered promptly.

Last, but not least: Our Better Speech and Hearing Month (BSHM) celebration is Thursday, May 30. I, along with the BSHM committee, look forward to seeing and sharing all the projects from students and therapists. It's always an interesting and enjoyable evening.

Along with the entire Executive Board, I am looking forward to working with all of you,

In Unity,

Caroline Murphy, MS, CCC-SLP, TSHH
