I began as a local president representing certifi d and classifi d members. We were an AEA Local of Distinction under my leadership, which led me to serving on the AEA Board of Directors. I was then elected AEA Treasurer and have six years of experience overseeing two vital AEA committees, as well as our overall AEA budget of $7.7 million. I have been the lead treasurer for all NEA state affiliates proudly representing Arizona. Our union needs leaders who have been at the forefront of our current education issues. Not only have I been leading as one-third of our AEA officer eam, but I have been teaching in our schools at every level during this pandemic. I have the experience of being a certifi d and classifi d employee as well as teaching experience K-12+. As an Arizona native from the rural mining town of Globe-Miami, I also have strong union roots in labor. With racial and social justice issues becoming more prevalent in our schools, my graduate degree in Equity Education as well as being a teacher of color teaching predominantly students of color, allows me to be an authentic voice leading these important conversations that impact a signifi ant percentage of Arizona's public school students. I am thoroughly prepared to be the next AEA Vice President and I would be honored to have your vote. Address: 11151 East Sebring Avenue, Mesa, AZ 85212
