Debbie Ervine


In seventeen years with the TDSB I have taught every grade from FDK to grade eight in one capacity or another, as well as Special Education, ESL and Library. I have been the union steward or alternate in four different schools.

Motivation for becoming a Candidate

My passion for wanting to become an executive officer is fuelled by many things. Over the years I have seen a huge increase in teachers’ workload, no matter what the grade. In addition, the respect that all teachers deserve seems to be eroding each year. ETT members should feel respected by their employer, its principals, parents and students.

What I have to offer

  • I have experience in all grades and in five different schools
  • I will act in the pursuit and defence of justice whenever possible
  • I have an eternal commitment to working hard on your behalf and making YOU the priority


Since members need their executive officers to focus on their everyday needs in the classroom, the committee that is of interest to me is Collective Agreement and Bargaining, as that is what will ultimately affect the working conditions of each and every ETT member.
