Association of Filipino Teachers In Eastern America, Inc.

Building Lives, Building Families, and Building Professions

AFTEA Mission Statement 

     The Kapisanan ng mga Gurong Filipino sa Silangang Amerika (KGFSA) better known as AFTEA, Inc., is an association of Filipino teachers teaching in the public and private schools in Eastern America. The group was organized on December 22, 2006 for the purpose of building a strong professional support among Filipino teachers, help  strengthen teacher relationships and their families,  address the financial needs of its members through membership voluntary contributions and, to foster and preserve Filipino cultural values of pagsasamahan and pagtutulungan.
Absolutely, AFTEA, Inc., is committed to creating the most open and accessible educational organization in history. That begins with:
  • sharing the "resources" or links of interests, the educationally-related sites, for all educators worldwide.
  • recognizing all "outstanding individuals" of their achievements in the field of education. 
  • linking with you the Filipino/non-Filipino group of teachers, friends, and educator proponents all over the world.
  • advertising the different teachers' groups or groups of educators in global scale via this well-known and famous website, and other social media outlets. 
  • spearheading our group educational tours for all teachers/friends across other states nationally, and also to other countries internationally. 
  • doing our International "Travel To Share" program in the Philippines, and eventually reaching out to the other countries as well by sharing the same project.
At present, the association has more than one-hundred active members in New York,  Maryland, Washington, D.C. and from other states as well.


AFTEA  aims to:
