The American Federation of Teachers Has Your Back

 

Your union is about showing up, caring, fighting, and thriving. That’s why the team at AFT's Share My Lesson created a personalized space for AFT local unions. These resources have been curated, with the help of local leaders, to serve as your one-stop destination for high-quality, educator-vetted materials for teachers, higher education faculty, food service personnel, paraprofessionals, custodians, bus drivers, school secretaries, specialized instructional support personnel, and school staff.

 

We have timely resource collections and lessons tailored to meet the particular needs of each affiliate. Share My Lesson also offers ways to communicate with other union members in your local and across the country in unique community spaces. 

 

The AFT is here to help you keep students learning and communities thriving under continued difficult and unprecedented circumstances. That’s who we are as a union. Thank you for all you do.
