Biology fellows (from left) Cody Gordon, Jaginda Lewis and Neeya Byrd were among the nearly 1,000 members from the 2015 cohort of New York City Teaching Fellows who were welcomed to the city’s public school system at a June 12 event at Kings Theatre in Brooklyn. UFT Vice President for Elementary Schools Karen Alford joined Chancellor Carmen Fariña and others in giving advice to the new educators. “Teaching is a calling,” Alford said. “Thanks for joining our ranks. From our Albert Shanker College Scholarship Fund, which provides $1 million each year to high school seniors, to assisting teachers in attaining their National Board certification, your union will be with you upholding professionalism and advocating on behalf of our students.”
