Councillor - Diana Corazza
Diana Corazza grew up in an immigrant family that emphasized the importance of education. She went on to become a secondary school teacher at Father Michael McGivney Catholic Academy (York Unit), where she helps immigrant students learn the English language and navigate the settlement process.
Diana believes it is important to provide a safe, welcoming, inclusive environment for students while also embracing the diversity and unique experiences they bring to the classroom. She especially enjoys teaching the Grade 10 Canadian History course, which enables her to share the many contributions that Indigenous peoples, immigrants, and women have made to this country.
Having already been a “go-to” OECTA person in her school for many years, sharing information and answering questions on all things related to the collective agreement and staffing, Diana was elected to the York Unit Executive in 2013. She has served the Association in many different ways, including attending rallies and conferences, being an AGM delegate, and organizing workshops for members of the local unit. She has also served on a variety of local committees, as well as the provincial Legislation committee. She is passionate about advocating for her students and her colleagues, striving to ensure that all voices are heard and respected.
