“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, concerned citizens can change the world. Indeed it is the only thing that ever has.”~ Margaret Mead
If selected, it would be my honor to serve as President-Elect of ACTEAZ, it is my goal to contribute to the greatness of the organization and to serve you. ACTEAZ is already a national leader in advancing the CTE Delivery Model. If selected as President, I would hope to draw on my experience in the following areas to contribute to the leadership of the Association
Advocacy – Experience at local, state and national levels running political campaigns and advocating for Career and Technical Education. One of the core tenets of the Association, is to advocate on your behalf. It is my intent to lean on my past experience and by your most adherent voice.
Professional Development – As someone who came into the classroom years ago, with limited knowledge of classroom management and best practices, I value and wholeheartedly support robust professional development for members. My goal is to expand access and availability to professional development statewide.
Networking – In my current position as Career Coach, my job is to develop and curate relationships with community, business and industry partners. I will continue those efforts statewide to strengthen the support of your programs. In addition, my goal is to support and grow connections through Circle of Distinction members.
Member Support – Having experience in the nonprofit sector, postsecondary education, a classroom teacher and CTE program director, I have walked the same walk and been in the same shoes as many of you. I understand the most important responsibilities as President is to support, listen to and serve the members of the Association and it is my intent to do so.
Together, as a small group of thoughtful educators, we can go out and change the world. If selected, it would be a true honor to serve as President of ACTEAZ. Thank you for your support.
