My name is Janell Ochs and am in my 14th year of teaching in the Chandler School District. Additionally, I have two children that have gone through our district’s schools and I have a grandson who will start kindergarten next year! I have been a CEA member for fourteen years and currently am an AR for Shumway Leadership Academy. Making the CUSD stronger and better is important to me.

My vision is to build membership in our association so more teachers’ voices are heard. We have diverse needs throughout the district that I feel is important to address and discuss as a group. Together we can make a change for the better of our students.
