Platform Statement: I love CTE, and I love Family and Consumer Sciences. I can’t imagine a better way to prepare students for life and careers. From our classes, students can learn the skills they need to succeed throughout their lives—both at home and in the workplace. FACS programs are under attack. With sagging school budgets, many feel FACS classes to be unnecessary. Never have they been more necessary for society. As society understands the benefits of our curriculum in students’ lives, our defense is made. I have a passion and deep understanding of how our programs can and do change lives. Standing and speaking out for the interests of ACTE membership is critical. I feel I can do this. I am hard working and have a love for people. Having served in many leadership positions nationally and on the state level, I have an understanding of how ACTE functions. I have learned much from these experiences, and I look forward to learning more through continued leadership opportunities.
