Margaret (Meg) Jones

For VP of Elementary School, MORE-UFT

Meg Jones, MORE UFT, Elementary School General Education Teacher and Respect For All Liaison at The William Lynch School in District 6, Manhattan Running for Elementary Executive Board.

I have been an Early Childhood Teacher for 11 years and I have taught in the NYC DOE at PS 368 for the past 9 years. I am active in my school community and I am currently trying to organize with families and staff. I have been a member of the MORE Caucus for several years, where I have been an active member of the Health Justice Working Group. I have been involved in the planning and preparation of many protests, phone banks, and other organizing actions around issues such as Safe School Reopening, Black Lives Matter in School, Tax the Rich campaign, and LQBTQIA+ activism. I am also a member of NYCoRE and Teachers Unite Uptown/Bronx. I am running for the Elementary Executive Board to fight for and amplify the voices of elementary school staff in our union, especially Early Childhood Educators like myself, who have been left at the whims of an unsafe, and oftentimes, careless school system that has not taken care of our wellbeing and safety. I believe that we have the chance to create a truly democratic and rank and file focused union, where the voices of those on the ground are heard and valued.
