Colleagues, how shall we face our numerous challenges in both public education and our profession? I believe it is through a unified membership, standing together.
As an Association, our strength comes from our membership — Alberta teachers and school leaders. We must support public education, as together we have a strong voice! In unity, teachers marched to the legislature last February to voice their support for what matters. Whether advocating for input on the new curriculum, for the health and safety of our colleagues and students or for funding school growth, the message from Alberta teachers has been loud and clear — government must do what is best for public education in Alberta!
At the provincial table and on Association committees, I voice the concerns of Edmonton and Fort McMurray teachers and school leaders. At all levels, I promise to continue to hold our elected officials to account for their decisions when it comes to supporting public education, both its students and teachers. Hard conversations on difficult issues must continue.
As teachers we must be prepared for whatever the future has in store. It is time to come together with a strong voice, in unity.
I have supported teachers in the tough times in the past — fire, flood and COVID. I will be there beside them for whatever challenges we may face in the future.
I am proud to be an Alberta teacher. I would be honoured to continue to serve the teachers of Edmonton and Fort McMurray on Provincial Executive Council.
