Daria Plummer started teaching in South Windsor in 1967, and quickly got involved with her local union.
When she took the next step and got involved with CEA, she found that involvement enabled her to connect with other teachers from across the state. “It was mind blowing,” she tells CEA President Kate Dias and Vice President Joslyn DeLancey in the latest episode of CEA’s podcast.
Plummer went on to become CEA’s first full time vice president and then president in the 1990s.
CEA celebrates its 175th anniversary this year, and Plummer reflected with Dias and DeLancey on CEA’s past and what she sees as bright spots for the union moving forward.
You can join CEA in celebrating this milestone anniversary at a fundraising gala on September 29. Join us for an evening that includes dinner, dancing, an awards night, and a silent auction to benefit the Connecticut Education Foundation.
