A message from 2022 NYSAFLT President Jenny Delfini
Friends and colleagues,
A few short months ago, I asked you to take your summer break and come back refreshed. I’ve seen on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter that we collectively have done that, from honing a green thumb in a backyard garden to wandering the streets of a city halfway across the globe. I saw evidence of teachers taking care of themselves to recharge and energize for the new school year.
I also saw teachers getting ahead in their professional journeys. I was fortunate to attend one of NYSED’s Unit Design Workshops in my area. Dr. Joanne O’Toole, Bill Heller, and Dr. Lori Langer de Ramirez are true role models and dedicated professionals in our craft. I left that afternoon feeling better prepared to adapt and change my curricula as the start date for implementing the revised WL standards gets even closer – next fall!
