As an immigrant teacher and a union activist, I have witnessed, and experienced inequities in the school system: curriculum workload (collecting forms, extracurricular activities), violence in schools and teacher allegations. I am extremely passionate and committed to advocate for social justice, and changes that could ultimately make our workload more equitable and less demanding. At a winter general meeting I advocated to have additional general meetings, specifically for members to come and share their concerns, directly to the Executive. This monumental event took place November 2016.
Work with EO in the FOS: organize and inform members of meetings, initiatives, and make recommendations to our Executive. As a member of several committees, CB, ARESJ, PD, PAC Chair, we also plan events in which members can actively participate.
- Cap Junior & Intermediate class sizes– improve on inequity and excessive workload
- Violence in the classroom-work to eliminate violence in the classroom
- Teacher Allegation – empowering and equipping members on PRS policies and procedures on how to navigate the challenging system
