Another MORE steering committee member tells about her personal journey to activism over the past year.
For way too long I was a complacent special ed teacher in Harlem who did what everyone else did. I complained with co-workers which really got nothing done other than cause more complaining.I only know Mindy for less than a year -- more like 8 months - she is one of the most responsible and supportive people I've met -- what a bonus to have her put so much energy and time into MORE.
I've maintained that you don't need thousands to change the union and defend public education -- you need a few dozen Mindys.
