Hellenic American Educators Association/UFT

The Hellenic American Educators Association of the UFT represents members of the Greek community working in the New York City public school system. HAEA/UFT was established in 1975 with the enthusiasm and vision of its founder, Dr. Nikos M. Spanakos, who brought together a group of educators of Greek descent for the purpose of uniting Hellenes with Phihellenes to promote Hellenic ethic identity in the mainstream of American education. HAEA/UFT is dedicated to actively serving our students and the educational community with pride and vision while fostering Hellenic ideals.

The goals of HAEA/UFT are to:

  • Raise the ethnic consciousness of educators through cultural exchange, lectures and workshop
  • Serve as a liaison on educational issues pertinent to the Greek-American Community
  • Arrange professional activities through cultural and academic studies
  • Offer guidance to college students interested in entering the teaching profession
