CTPF Celebrates Quasquicentennial Anniversary in 2020
Share your stories and photos for the celebration


The Chicago Teachers’ Pension Fund (CTPF) will celebrate its quasquicentennial (125th anniversary) throughout 2020. CTPF will commemorate this milestone of serving members, constituents, community, and citizens of Illinois with distinction. 

The quasquicentennial provides a unique opportunity to reflect on the rich history of the Fund, and renew CTPF’s commitment to helping teachers from the very first day to the very last and beyond. 

Call for Photos and Reflections

As part of the 2020 celebration, the Fund is seeking photos and memories/reflections of CTPF educators, with a goal of obtaining a photo from each of the past 125 years. Do you have a photo of yourself at work in your classroom or work space? Or even a parent or grandparent? We’d also like to collect words of wisdom and thoughts about teaching. Please share them with us. We will use them in a special slideshow that we will share with our members on our website and social media.

How to share photos and words of wisdom:

  1. Email a photo of yourself in your work environment to socialmedia@ctpf.org. 
  2. Please include your name, school, and year taken (approximate is fine)
  3. Submissions will be shared in a special slideshow and on social media (they will be identified as Name M., SCHOOL NAME, 19xx).
