Ledyard Building Rep Designs New Teacher Manual

Uses input from colleagues, says being proactive is key

Being a local Association building rep is a complex job, but Ledyard building rep Tiffany MacCall describes the essence of her role simply. "I try to make days better for teachers, because everything's getting harder and harder. I want to make sure teaching is a profession that still has joy."

The Juliet W. Long School third-grade teacher says, "Members really come to depend on you. It's often the little things—questions about when the first paycheck of the year will be, or about the contract."

This kind of routine question can be especially overwhelming for new teachers, and so MacCall says one of the very first things she did when she became a building rep was to put together a new teacher manual.
