By Jeffery M. Freitas, CFT President
Another school year has started. As an educator, August and
September have traditionally been the time when I set New Year’s
resolutions for the coming academic year. It starts me off on a
positive note to identify my goals, my priorities, and the areas
in which I want to learn and grow.
I think about our work at CFT in much the same way, and just like
when I was teaching, beginning a new school year as an
organization is not just the work of one person. Setting goals
for the CFT is not just the work of leaders or the Executive
Council. Rather it demands real-time feedback from our membership
so that we, as a statewide union, can respond to the issues
members identify as top priorities. To do that important work, we
have undertaken a number of projects to listen to members and
respond to what we have heard.
