Friends and Colleagues,
As Executive Officer, I have worked to connect members in my vision to strengthen and unite E.T.T.
I sit on the Kindergarten and Special Education work-groups that meet directly with TDSB officials to make improvements to the most important issues we face daily inclassrooms.
Throughout my 16 years of teaching, I’ve been a Committee Member, Union Steward, Regional Councillor and ETT Organizer. In these roles, I’ve had one-on-one conversations with teachers who shared important issues. I advocate to achieve the changes we want, need and deserve.
As teachers, we deal with the lack of resources, lack of supports, violence in the classroom, parental harassment, and difficult administrators, just to identify a few. I understand the frustration of the bureaucracy required to deal with these issues.
As Executive Officer, I work with you and assist you to manoeuvre through the appropriate procedures and protocols to get issues resolved.
As Executive Officer, I have promptly answered your calls/emails, shared information and supported members through difficult situations. I will continue building our union, maintaining and fighting for equity and protecting the rights of members. I want to continue to grow WITH and IN our union.
Re-Elect Amber Bowen, Executive Officer!
