Years Teaching: 16
Why are you involved in the teacher's union?
My start was actually due to a more rocky experience very early in my teaching career. I quickly learned how important it was to know our contract and my rights as a teacher and vowed I would never let what happened to me happen to anyone else. I love being a part of what shapes, supports, and encourages other teachers. It's so important to have a voice in the conversation and be a part of the in's and out's of our jobs. It keeps me invested, passionate, and up to date with our local schools, district, and state decisions.
