ORLANDO, Florida - July 04, 2015 -

More than 7,000 delegates to the National Education Association Representative Assembly (RA) voted to elect Ellsworth High School teacher Shelly Moore to the Association’s Executive Committee. Moore is a National Board Certified Teacher and an English and Drama teacher with 17 years of classroom experience. She will begin serving a three-year term in September.

“As a teacher, I am deeply committed to the success of every student, and I’m honored to bring that commitment to NEA’s Executive Committee,” said Moore. “I look forward to working with members of the NEA to ensure that every child, regardless of their circumstances, has the support, tools and time to learn and a team of high quality professionals to support them.”

“As a classroom teacher, Shelly knows the challenges and difficulties public school students and educators face,” said NEA President Lily Eskelsen García. “Shelly brings her 17 years of classroom experience to our Executive Committee, and we’re excited to have her passion for training the leaders of tomorrow and ensuring every student has a caring, qualified, committed teacher.”

Prior to her election to the Executive Committee, Moore has been a leader within her community on the state, local and national level. She currently serves as Treasurer of her local assocation and is a past President and Vice President. Moore is also a member of the Board of Directors for the Wisconsin Education Association Council (WEAC), and served on NEA’s Board of Directors for six years. Moore, who grew up in Beloit, Wisconsin, earned her bachelor’s degree from University of Wiscosin-Stevens Point and a master’s degree in English Education from the University of Wisconsin-River Falls where she also serves as an adjunct instructor.

The NEA Executive Committee consists of nine members—three executive officers and six members—elected at-large by the RA. The committee is responsible for guiding NEA policy and acts for the NEA Board of Directors in between its four regularly scheduled meetings each year.
