Marcia M. Thompson


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.

RC/Committee: Responsibilities
