My name is Terry Ryan. I am a teacher at CP Allen in Bedford. Throughout my 20 years of teaching, I have held various roles such as resource/ learning centre teacher, classroom teacher at both Junior and Senior High level as well as an elementary administrator. I have been involved with the NSTU as a representative, as VP of Communications and VP of Professional Development for the past 15 years. I have also served on the Discipline Committee at the provincial level.
I believe there exists a disconnect between the teachers within our local and those at the provincial table. It is crucial that teachers in the Halifax County Local feel they have a voice representing their viewpoints and concerns. I am prepared to use my experience and bring OUR message of supporting student learning, while protecting the integrity of the teacher as a professional to the provincial table.
