He’s the teachers’ pet.

The New York City teachers’ union on Monday overwhelmingly endorsed city Comptroller Scott Stringer for mayor.

The UFT’s backing of Stringer does not come as a surprise — particularly to rival campaigns — as Stringer has close ties to the union.

The UFT backed Stringer for Manhattan borough president in 2005, when he defeated Eva Moskowitz, CEO of Success Academy, the city’s largest charter school network.

The UFT endorsement is a big boost for Stringer, who has trailed rivals Andrew Yang and Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams in recent polls.

UFT president Michael Mulgrew and the union executive board recommended Stringer to the union’s delegates.

A convincing 90 percent of the delegates voted for Stringer, a union source said.

Stringer also recently won the endorsement of the left-leaning Working Families Party, so he has some momentum heading toward the June 22 Democratic primary.

The UFT has nearly 200,000 active and retired members.
