As technology continues to advance at a rapid rate, so does the need
for an increasingly technologically literate society. Therefore, I
believe that engineering and technology education has never been more
important and leadership within the field is needed to be a voice for
technology teachers at all levels. The eTED division of ACTE must be
both a support structure and an advocate for these teachers.
goal if elected vice president is to continue actively promoting
engineering and technology education at all levels of education,
recruiting new and existing teachers to participate in leadership roles
within the field, and effectively representing all engineering and
technology education teachers within ACTE and at the national level.
Additionally, I will work towards improving the quality of what the
Division offers by working closely with ACTE eTED members to best meet
