I am seeking election for President of the NLTA. You will be given the opportunity to vote electronically during the week of November 23rd - 27th, 2020!
As your Vice-President, I have worked decisively and diligently to address long-standing issues within our workplace and respond to critical and emergent needs...I plan to continue this quality of service as your President.
We are a Union & a Professional Association - both are equally essential to our protection and growth. As Chair of your Negotiating Team and member of the Provincial Executive, these dual mandates drive my daily work.
Now is NOT the time to be complacent. The Newfoundland & Labrador public education system is undergoing significant change at unprecedented rates given the current COVID-19 panademic. I make every effort to educate myself on provincial, national, and international issues impacting education and teacher welfare (e.g. workplace mental health, violence, student accountability,...).
I value your time, your contribution, and your perspective. There are times when you need individual support and attention. I have been available to members as needed and will commit to serving you in this personal capacity.
It has been an honor to serve as your Vice-President and I look forward to working through future challenges with you.
I have been proud to represent you (under the direction of our President and Provincial Executive) and I am energized by the influence of our teachers throughout our province, in our communities and society as a whole.
I respectfully ask for your support on Election Day
Yours in Solidarity,
