Beginning Wednesday evening, January 18th, NEA provided training for teams of women association leaders from the nine Midwestern states prior to our Regional Leadership Conference. Team ISEA had four great leaders making up our team. Pictured here (from left to right) are Dolores Silva, a High School Spanish teacher from Muscatine; Sara Yarbrough, an elementary teacher at Gibson Elementary in Cedar Rapids; Connie Gronstal, Birth to Three Specialist at Area Education Agency 13 from Council Bluffs; and Stacey Ross, a High School Government teacher in Fairfield. Their training was completed Friday afternoon and each member from our team then stayed the remainder of the weekend to participate in the Midwest Regional Leadership Conference.
Our team of women leaders were so enthusiastic when speaking of this great training opportunity, they were just bubbling over with enthusisam! What a great investment from Team NEA! Thanks go out too to our Team ISEA Women Leaders!
