Tiff Pino

Tiff Pino (she/her) is a queer educator and parent of 7-year-old twins and has been a teacher within Edmonton Catholic Schools since 2004. She has been an advocate and activist for the rights of others since she was very young and over the past decade she has shared her personal story, knowledge and hope of creating safer spaces for the  2-Spirit, Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, + (2SLGBTQ+) community as she feels there is a gap in understanding about the different sexual and gender identities that exist and about the real vulnerability that 2SLGBTQ+ students, staff and families experience in the school systems. Tiff has been honored to present at the Alberta GSA Conference in previous years, as well at The Greater Edmonton Teacher Convention Association (GETCA), to the Educational Society of Edmonton and at the Egale Identity Conference in Toronto. She was also recently selected as the Alberta Teacher Representative for the Canadian Teachers' Advisory Circle (CTAC) at the Canadian Museum of Human Rights. Her ultimate hope is to leave every space that she enters as a safer one for others.
