I began teaching in 1998. I have always been a member of my union. I value the protections that it has given me in the past. When I came to Clark County, I became more involved. First it began with a protest during contract stalemates. Then it was working in my building to get more of my colleagues involved during the legislative sessions. I have seen what a difference an organized union can do. I have listened to concerns of members for the last four years.
To continue doing the work we must do in our local, we need more funding. Whether it is the fight we face during contract negotiations (and arbitration) or the fight in Carson City, we must control our destiny. Members want local choices and local control, and I will fight for exactly that. Let's move forward together!
