An Advocate for Teachers
The most important and visible role of NSTU president is to be its public spokesperson. It is vital that this person be articulate, and present with authenticity and credibility.
As an NSTU leader, I’ve been a thoughtful advocate for teachers and our NSTU on social media, in print, radio and TV interviews. I’ve been interviewed on Rick Howe and the Todd Veinotte show. Like many other incredible advocates, I’ve presented at the Law Amendments Committee to bring our concerns forward in order to pressure the government to withdraw anti-education and anti-Union bills.
After the release of the Glaze report, I was part of a Glaze Report presentation at Halifax West High. I collaborated with other NSTU members to help educate the public on the issues of the Glaze Report and Bill 72. To build strength in the NSTU, it is imperative that we build relationships with outside organizations in order to further our cause.
