Administration Division

Eastern Oklahoma County Technology Center

OkACTE/ACTE Membership: 24 years

Professional organizations are formed to advance the interests of individuals associated within a particular profession and are only as strong as the involvement of its membership.  As a career and technology education administrator in Oklahoma, I believe our professional organization, the OkACTE, is the strongest and most publicly recognized state CTE organization.  However, as members we often take for granted the opportunities for professional growth and member networking we have within our state.

 

As the next OkACTE President, I will strive to increase the awareness and participation of members within each division.  We must provide opportunities for members to appreciate the value of our OkACTE activities and increase member understanding that their involvement not only benefits themselves, but also makes our Oklahoma CTE professional organization stronger.  It is essential that we continually focus on networking and professional development activities to equip and unite each career and technology educator in Oklahoma.

As I reflect on this last year, I am thankful that we have emerged like a phoenix from the ashes reborn. We stretched our knowledge, stretched our boundaries on teaching and stretched our very innermost strength of pure will to be successful.

 

As we have navigated the waters of this pandemic we learned new communication skills that have made us better leaders and teachers. It is up to us to capitalize on these new opportunities and it is vital for our organization to work together now more than ever. Unification of all facets in our industry will provide our members with greater benefits. As we look to the future, I want to encourage you to focus on the ever-changing needs of our membership.
