For those who live in the 5th district, BFT President David Hayes wholeheartedly encourages Democratic voters to support Waterbury teacher Jahana Hayes (no relation). David first met Jahana 3 years ago at a Teacher Leadership Summit in Washington, DC. At the time, Jahana had just been awarded Waterbury and Connecticut Teacher of the Year, and would receive the National Teacher of the Year award a few months later. “Jahana is that rare individual whose sincerity and positivity bring out the best in those around her. She is very smart, honest, and hard working. We have enough lawyers and business people in congress.¬† With Jahana, a teacher’s voice would be injected to the national discourse.”
