Position Statement for President-elect: With the current state of education, teachers need strong advocates in their professional organizations who will make sure their voices and needs are heard. Teachers also need leaders who will provide strong input about programs offered through their professional organizations such as TCTELA. 

As President-Elect of TCTELA, my goal is to capitalize on the work that has been done by previous leaders in advocating for English educators with the Texas legislature, with the State Board of Education, and at the national level. I hope to build on that work and continue to propel both the organization and English teachers forward through our publications, our advocacy efforts, our annual conference, and future professional development offerings.
