GFT’s At-Large officers were able to hear Bill Gates speak at the AFT Convention this past weekend about the importance of helping teachers become great teachers to get the best possible results for student achievement. “We have to make sure that teachers get the evaluations, training, standards, curriculum, assessments and the student data they need to improve their practice. And teachers deserve our support and respect as they do this”, stated Gates. Click here to view the full speech and more videos from the convention
Teachers throughout the nation including Guam need full support to better our children’s education. Guam’s public schools have amazing teachers who do the best they can to make sure their students excel but they can do so much better with proper funding. Guam’s legislature will be going into session next month for the budget bill and we need our Senators to start fully funding education so that our teachers can acquire the tools and resources to become great teachers for our children.
