My name is Christian Peabody. I am the Falmouth elementary music Educator, and it has become my greatest honor to serve SCPS through SEA. My journey as a member began 7 years ago at NTI, when I didn't even have enough money to fill my gas tank for my first week of work, and SEA was there to help me out. Fast forward a few years with multiple state-level advocacy awards, unprecedented pay raises for staff, historical policies and state laws empowering and protecting ALL Educators and Students in the Commonwealth...that's just the BEGINNING of what makes SEA special. We are truly the sole broker and partner that advances the Misson of the Division to "Inspire. Empower. Excel." Most importantly, we are a family. As President of what has now become the most powerful and proactive Local Union in the VEA, I cannot wait to have you become part of this team.
My name is Kathy Butler and I am the Vice 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!!
I am a lifelong member of SEA, and a proud teacher at the World's Greatest High School - North Stafford. I am heavily involved with the STAT program, where I teach English and enjoy breaking paradigms with my cross curricular teaching.
My first active action in the SEA was to be nominated the chair of the Mountain Serve Training Cadre - which led me to other leadership opportunities. I discovered my passion for bylaws and minutiae last summer at the VEA Leadership Academy, and am very excited to be a member of the executive board this year!
Feel free to reach out to me if I can help you in any way!
