I have been teaching in Ken-Ton for 17 years and from day one, learned the importance and role of our KTA. Now, more than ever, the fight to protect Public Education has become my focus. I believe in advocating and being the voice for our students, their families and the community we work in. Every year has brought new opportunities and experiences to get me involved further with our union at the Local, State and National Level.
