I have been an STA member since 1990. I was a staff rep every year until 2001 when I was elected Grievance Officer of the STA. I did that for a year and, when I was re-elected the following year, it was as a Grievance/Health and Safety Officer. In January 2005, I was appointed to the staff of the BCTF as Health and Safety Officer. I returned to the classroom in February 2009 where I taught grades 3-6. In May 2017, I was again elected STA Grievance Officer. I have been in that position since September 2017.
