Welcome to the Teachers Assigned Chapter
Dear Brothers and Sisters,
Welcome back from what I hope was an enjoyable summer break! I am looking forward to working with you in what I hope will be a rewarding and enjoyable year of growth, change and progress for us all. Please remember that I am always available should you need information or assistance — you can email me at or call me at 718-852-4900.
Please check back here often on our chapter’s section of the UFT website periodically for news and important updates for our chapter. Please also let me know of any ideas you may have for things to add to our chapter's web pages to make them informative and useful to you!
Please also familiarize yourself with Article 11 of the teachers’ contract for more information about your position as a teacher assigned. To view our contract online, you’ll need to make sure you are signed up on the website. It just takes a minute and it’s very important because only by signing up do you receive emails from our chapter and the union and get ull access to our contract online.
And, lastly, please be sure to hold onto a copy of the posting to which you applied this year. All of these resources may come in handy in the future.
To help me serve you, I will be creating a survey in the near future to get your ideas on other ways we can stay in touch, whether it’s through regular chapter meetings, monthly newsletters; a table at Teacher Union Day or the Spring Conference; participation as a team in other union activities; or through some other way that you may think of.
In addition to me in my role as chapter leader, our chapter is represented by two delegates, each with a unique perspective and area of expertise. Lynne Ann Kilroy is the coordinator of the Peer Intervention Program and is based at UFT headquarters in Manhattan; Sheila Laval Friedman is the Victim Support Program coordinator in the Manhattan borough office.
This year a new position has been added to our teachers assigned chapter, citywide peer validators. Please join me in extending a warm welcome to the new peer validators in our ranks.
Thank you all for your dedication to your profession and our union!

More than 1,100 UFT members had a successful lobby day in Albany on March 4. State legislative leaders addressed them at the Convention Center and then they fanned out to lobby their local elected officials in their offices, sharing their first-hand accounts of what students and educators need to ensure a quality education for all.
