Ayesatta Conteh

As a classroom teacher for almost 20 years, I have developed strong advocacy skills and become a staunch ally of my colleagues.  Fighting to meet your wide-ranging needs has always been one of my top priorities. Therefore I believe the time has come for real and lasting change within our justice-seeking, 11,000 strong Union.

Your concerns are my concerns: class sizes, workload, protection from violent incidents, equitable teaching assignments, and reducing the stress of our jobs. As an ETT Organizer I am ready to respond to your issues by listening carefully, fostering honest communications, encouraging community collaboration, and taking actions that achieve results. By promoting higher member participation and collective action, together we can commit ourselves to the creation of positive impactful solutions that bring back joy and fulfillment to our teaching profession. Your vote will empower me to join an ETT Executive team that acknowledges your concerns and acts appropriately on your behalf.

My promise to you:

  • I will hear you and be a strong voice advocating on your behalf;
  • I will be empathetic, responsive and caring;
  • I will fight for a democratic union where everyone’s voice matters.

I respectfully ask for your support and your vote.
