Welcome to the website of the Appalachian Teachers’ Association, which represents the teachers of the Eastern Townships School Board.  Our purpose is to provide you with the information you need to make informed professional decisions, whether those concern your personal or collective rights or a better understanding of the teacher’s role in school life.  Please feel welcome to contact us should you have any questions at all.

Welcome to the start of a brand new year!

Teachers are so fortunate; every fall brings us the opportunity to start afresh!  New students, new outlook, new ideas, new opportunities, sometimes new courses….   We hope you have a wonderful start to your new year!
