GTA Executive Board
I am a GUSD graduate, Gilroy High School English teacher, and proud GTA secretary. I decided to become involved in the GTA leadership team because I believe in the power of organized labor and collective action to make positive change and I have seen firsthand what we can accomplish when we work together.
As part of GTA exec team, I plan to keep GTA united, facilitating the ease of access to our resources for unit members. It is one of my many duties to continue organizing with the collaboration of union members in an effort to share successful ideas. It is my hope to encourage sustained engagement within our organization to enhance recruitment of our teachers and continued participation
