Members of the Federation of Pottstown Teachers stand while Lincoln Elementary School teacher Kristin Lafferty addresses the Pottstown School Board Thursday night.
Once again, the Federation of Pottstown Teachers provided the headlines at the Pottstown School Board meeting.
This time, two members of the union, both of whom live in Pottstown and one of whom was also born, educated and raised here, took to the podium and, when they did, all green-shirted federation members stood in unison.
They talked to the school board how long they have worked at the district and how little their pay has risen, how they can no longer afford to live in Pottstown and how unappreciated it makes them feel.
The district is in the midst of negotiating a new contract with the teachers.
You can see video of the presentations by high school social studies Maureen Rieger and Lincoln Elementary School first grade teacher Kristin Lafferty in the Twitter feed below.
You will also be able to see video not only of the comments by federation vice president Mike DiDonato, but also by high school math teacher Robert Dekcer, who was the producer for The Wiz and reflected on the rewarding experience.
Without further ado, here are the Tweets!
