Weingarten visits North Bergen, praises local’s efforts

AFT President Randi Weingarten on Sept. 23 visited Robert Fulton Elementary School in North Bergen to meet with district leaders and take a tour of the building. 

“What you did all last year and in this year in creating a normalcy for kids … kids being back in school is going to heal this nation,” Weingarten said to those assembled in the auditorium. “I just really wanted to say thank you — thank you for doing that.”

“Thank you, Randi, for your support of teachers, both professionally and personally,” said North Bergen Federation of Teachers President Carol Toomey in her introductory remarks. “Your leadership is critical to our success, to the success of the community of North Bergen, and to the success of our nation.”
