I value the potential opportunity to serve ACTE in a leadership role. If elected, I will serve with purpose, professionalism and passion! I will provide strong, consistent leadership. I will advocate for continued growth and strength of career and technical education by partnering with those who have a shared vision. I will strive to build the capacity of our organization by promoting ACTE and encouraging others to pursue ACTE’s leadership and professional development offerings. I will work with purpose to strengthen ACTE. As a career and technical educator, I believe in strong secondary and post-secondary instructional programs, seamlessly connected; strong Career and Technical Student Organizations (CTSOs) that develop career, leadership and personal growth; and strong business and industry connections that provide real life experiences for students. Each of these areas, individually and together, makes CTE unique and special, and prepares students for successful careers. Professionalism is expected of any leader.
