Teacher Vignettes

East Harford teacher Tracey Lafayette talks about why, after a year and a half of pandemic challenges and losses, teachers are stronger than ever.

Music teacher Chris Marsala says we need each other more than ever, and sometimes learning online just doesn’t cut it. That’s why he and his colleagues are doing their part to make sure children can be in school and stay safe and healthy.

There’s nothing like in-person instruction for both students and teachers, says New London teacher and local president Rich Baez.

ESOL teacher May Reitz says, “No matter what, we’re here for the students.”

Cheryl Viveiros says that teachers are strong and unified in the belief that every student is capable of anything.

Colleen Delaporta-Wells explains how teachers have learned to pivot and adapt during the pandemic.
