I am proud to say that I have spent my entire educational career (which started in 1996) in CUSD, and have been a member of CEA every step of the way. Whether it's in my role as an Instructional Technology Specialist at the IRC or as a leader of CEA, I love being able to work with the amazing teachers we have across the district.
