I am currently a Special Education teacher at Houston Middle School and this is my 16th year serving there. I previously served for 5 years as Chairman of the Political Action Committee with the Shelby County Education Association where I also served as a member of the Board of Directors. When the two school systems merged, I joined the Memphis Shelby Education Association as both a Board of Director and as Co-Chair of the Political Action Committee. When we demerged into Municipal School Systems, I led the Germantown steering committee. Germantown, Arlington and Lakeland voted to join together to have as many voices working together as possible. I am proud to lead our local association, GALEA, and am dedicated to doing whatever I can to assist our members. I believe in building a strong profession and hope to one day leave knowing it is better than when I started.
