Historically, Fairfield teachers have shied away from town politics. Our focus has and always will be on our students.

However, the inability of the current Board of Education to work collaboratively and respectfully to address the challenges facing the district drew us into this campaign. We met with all the candidates and endorsed five individuals whom we believed will model a cooperative spirit and support for education necessary to advance our school district. On Nov. 3, the town elected all five of those candidates.

The teachers would like to thank everyone in town for their support. We look forward to working with all town officials and the community to elevate the already high quality of education delivered by the Fairfield public schools. We care deeply about your children and the town in which we work. We are more determined than ever to help secure a bright future for all students in our care.
