My name is Kathy Butler and I am the President of the SEA. I am a 7th grade Administrative Assistant at AG Wright Middle School. I have been at AGW since 2012 where I started as a Paraprofessional. I became a member of SEA 2 years into my job and became more active last year when I asked the simple question of "what can I do to help?" I have rallied with educators in Richmond, at School Board meetings, and rallies. The SEA works tirelessly for all of us, and I am so proud to be a part of this wonderful family that I have found. I can't wait for you to become part of our family!!
