My name is Robin Cline and I am a Program Specialist in Rapid City Area Schools. I have been in this position for 15 years, and a member of RCEA/SDEA for the same 15 years. I joined RCEA for two reasons. First, I was raised in a union family and taught to believe in employee organizations. Second, I believe that RCEA/SDEA both helps the teachers and improves the profession. The best part about joining RCEA/SDEA is the comradery between teachers. Finally, I have been honored to represent SDEA at the national NEA Representative Assembly for the past four years.
