Celebrating the Women of the CLC Executive Board: Spotlighting Janella Hinds
In honor of Women’s History Month, each week in March the NYC CLC will spotlight the women who sit on our Executive Board. This week, we’re celebrating Janella Hinds, Secretary-Treasurer of the CLC. Hinds is a certified social studies teacher who spent eight years working in Brooklyn schools as a dean, student council advisor, and conflict resolution specialist. In addition to performing her CLC duties, Hinds serves as the UFT Vice President for Academic High Schools and the Chair of the Union Childcare Coalition. She has dedicated her career to protecting public education, with special mention of her work on campaigns against unjust school closures and for the creation of more comprehensive teacher evaluation through union negotiations.
