My passion for CTAE began when I was a sophomore in high school. The skills I learned were invaluable and birthed within me the passion I have for CTAE teachers, students and programs. I know the benefit that our programs have on the lives of the students we teach. Our CTAE teachers are the most dedicated and hardworking individuals I have ever met and they inspire me to make sure that CTAE and GACTE are being adequately represented at the local, state and national levels. I want to ensure that GACTE is meeting the needs of our teachers while also advocating for the future of our CTAE programs.
