Position Statement for Vice President-elect for Membership and Affiliates: For the past year I have served TCTELA as the Recording Secretary, and I look forward to continuing my role as a board member. As a classroom teacher for 20 years, I know what struggles teachers are going thorough as we shift testing constraints and even as we move into a new TEKS era. Having lived the change from EE’s to TEKS and having now seen the newest changes being proposed, I am eager to keep TCTELA at the forefront of what is strong, research-based professional development and learning for all ELA educators. 

I want to see TCTELA continue to serve all teachers and to reach out to begin new affiliates to better server smaller districts to encompass all of Texas teachers. I look forward to continued service for and with the ELA teachers of Texas.
