Karla Hodges - President, Elementary/General Division


I hope this message finds you well and feeling refreshed after attending the 2015 AMEA Conference in January. We had three very busy days of professional development and fun and I hope that you were able to walk away with a few new ideas that you can implement into your classroom. Thank you for the feedback many of you have provided after attending the conference. It is always helpful to hear your ideas as we begin to plan for future conferences. If you were not able to attend this year I hope that you will be able to join us next year.


I would like to take this opportunity to say thank you to all of you. Thank you for trusting me to lead our division and for the continuous support and encouragement you have shown me over the past two years. It has been an honor to serve as your President. I will always look back on this time with gratitude because this opportunity challenged me to grow professionally and allowed me the opportunity to meet many new faces. I am excited to pass


the responsibility over to the new board. I know that their leadership will continue to guide us on the path of excellence. The Executive Officers for 2015-2017 are: Cliff Huckabee, President; Phil Wilson, President-elect; Karla Hodges, Past President; Lori Zachary, Treasurer; Melissa Thomason, Secretary; Kristi Howze, Hospitality.


I


would like to say a special thank you to our outgoing Past President, Dr. Beth Davis.
