The Prince George’s County Educators’ Association recently named Donna Christy as its new union president. Formerly the union’s treasurer, Christy has more than 20 of experience as a school psychologist as well as an extensive background in education policy and labor organizing.
““I believe in the collective strength of Prince George’s County educators, parents, and community members,” Christy said in a news release. “Working together, we can create a supportive, positive school environment where educators have the tools they need to help children thrive. We will together strengthen and build coalition partnerships that foster racial and social justice, secure more resources to help students succeed, and ensure our schools are healthy, safe, and stimulating places to learn.”
Christy has worked in several Prince George’s County schools, including William Paca Elementary, Charles H. Flowers High School and CMIT North Middle School and High School.
As Prince George’s County begins the school year, Christy and other PGCEA officials look forward to hearing from county educators, parents and community members to advance the fight for equity in Prince George’s County schools and in our communities.
