ATPE State President Deann Lee's school safety testimony
Date Posted: 1/29/2013 | Author: Jennifer Mitchell, CAE
With 15 years in the classroom, nine years as an administrator and more than 15 years as an ATPE leader, it’s hard to imagine ATPE State President Deann Lee as being inexperienced at anything. However, yesterday was the first time she has ever testified before a legislative committee. As it turns out, she proved to be very adept at it. Lee testified before a joint hearing of the Senate Education Committee and Senate Committee on Agriculture, Rural Affairs & Homeland Security on school safety. Her testimony was well received and secured ATPE a seat at the table as this issue winds its way through the legislative process. You can view the entire hearing by clicking on the link below. Lee’s testimony begins at the 1:49:33 mark. Deann Lee Senate Education Committee testimony on school safety
