Platform Statement: My passion for business education began in my high school business classes and continued in the community college program. With the support of my instructors, this passion turned into a four-year degree to teach high school business. I have been fortunate to continue to work in this area at the Iowa Department of Education, and it would be my privilege to continue this commitment as the ACTE Business Education Division vice president. My goals are as follows: to communicate timely and reliable messages, as this strengthens the Business Education Division; to foster close working relationships among the Business Division of ACTE, the National Business Education Association, National Association of Supervisors of Business Education and any other organization that has the shared vision of strengthening business education; and to promote the value of attending ACTE’s CareerTech Vision and National Policy Seminar. I am committed to achieving these goals for the Business Division of ACTE.
