2018 AFT/BTU Teacher Leaders Research Showcase

A hallmark of any union is member engagement. That can come in many ways. For the Baltimore Teachers Union, one way it comes is through the AFT/BTU Teacher Leaders Program. This program engages BTU members through ways to conduct research, learn more about unionism, and be better teachers for the students of Baltimore city.

At the end of every school year, the teachers who participate in the program share their research and conclusions. This year was no different, but one thing that did make this cohort group unique were the number of speakers and presenters who met with them throughout the year who came back to see their research showcase.

Speakers included WMAR’s Skylar Henry, Baltimore City Councilman John Bullock, and Baltimore City School Board Commissioner Linda Chinnia. This cohort group made such an impact on the speakers, they were excited to see the finished research. The 2017-2018 AFT/BTU Teachers Leaders are:

  • Krishnia Rainey-Boateng, Yorkwood Elementary
  • Sade Bell, Paul Laurence Dunbar High
