More than 400 Waterbury teachers attended a new teacher social Friday, to welcome new colleagues to the district. The new teacher social is held every year as an ice breaker to introduce the district’s new educators to the Waterbury Teachers’ Association and its members.
“It brings everyone together and shows our unity and how we can support each other,” said Waterbury Teachers Association President Kevin Egan. “It’s all about camaraderie. Our members get to meet new colleagues and catch up with old friends, in a social, relaxing atmosphere.”
