Lisa Jennings, Sioux Falls, SD
I am an elementary school secretary in Sioux Falls. I am in my 18th year as an educator. I joined SDEA because someone invited me along to an event. It made me feel like I mattered and that someone cared about me.
I had the opportunity to represent ESP cross the nation during my time on the NEA Board of Directors. I am also a NEA HCR Cadre trainer, teaching on matters of Diversity and Social Justice.
I will be forever indebted to the Association for my personal growth and the multitude of friends I have made across the nation.
