We work together — statewide and in our districts — to improve the pay and working conditions of our teachers, nurses, counselors, and other professionals.
We fight to thrive by creating respectful working conditions with more planning time, fewer added duties and extra paperwork, resources to prevent burnout before it starts, and a defined workday that doesn’t require us to sacrifice our personal lives for our jobs.
Share My Lesson is a community of teachers, school-related personnel, higher education faculty, and parents who contribute content, collaborate, and stay up to date on the issues that matter to students and educators everywhere.
Texas AFT’s Bridges Institute for Professional Development provides a wide variety of high-quality professional development and special programs. We serve members of Texas AFT and our public education community at large.
