Camille Eterno has been an English teacher in New York since 1996. She has 18 years of experience as both a chapter leader and UFT delegate.
As the chapter leader at the Queens Gateway to Health Sciences, Camille won grievances that even the UFT leadership said were not winnable. She helped organize her chapter into an activist force that was a major presence at many union rallies. As a leader in the Independent Community of Educators, Camille was instrumental in the nearly successful battle against the giveback-laden 2005 contract that robbed UFT members of so many hard-earned rights.
She is currently serving as the delegate from Veritas Academy in Queens where she also mentors a new teacher and serves on the UFT chapter committee.
Camille has recently been featured on CNN and ABC World News Tonight promoting safer working conditions for teachers and students in the pandemic. She is also the mother of two New York City public school students.
