Platform Statement: As the VP, I would like to see our section membership sky rocket! Can you imagine what we could do if each state could provide us with new teacher names yearly and we could provide information to each new teacher about our organization and what we have to offer? Just think of the possibilities of how many new members we could obtain! I would love to see all new teachers coming to the Regional and National meetings to see and hear how other teachers are meeting standards, credentialing, teaching and handling classroom issues that they probably think are unique to their classroom that we as older teachers see as an everyday occurrence. I will advocate for the Health Science Division. We must promote our programs for preparing our students to be productive, hardworking adults. And when our story is told, our politicians listen. And, when we show the skills our students have, others watch and want to be a part of the production.
