It is with mixed feelings that we share with you that Laura Brewer, SEA Vice President, has resigned from her position as a bus driver with SCPS. We are sad to see Laura leave, but excited to see her choosing her best life. In her own words:
I wanted to take this time to tell you that I will be stepping down as the Stafford Education Association Vice President. I have resigned my position as a School Bus Driver for SCPS and therefore am no longer eligible to be a member of the SEA. I want to thank you for allowing me to serve you, as it has been an honor and privilege to do so the past three years.
I’m actually not going too far. I will still be serving you but in another capacity. I will be working at the Mt. View UniServ Office.
With the Covid pandemic behind you it is time to come together. Educators are more powerful when you have a collective voice. Working together in a union allows you to make meaningful improvements not just to your pay and benefits, but for your students, profession, communities, and public education as well. In union there is strength.

Secretary Michele Wickman will serve as acting Vice President while we undergo this process. We will accept nominations for the Vice President position in this Special Election.
