President’s Message

As a teacher of Alternative Education students, I know first hand the dedication of teachers, paraprofessionals and administrators that work in an ALE.  As an AAAE board member and now President of the organization, I am excited about the future of the AAAE and ALE’s across Arkansas.

The vision of AAAE is to provide a statewide network, a unified voice and training/support for all ALE’s and their staff throughout Arkansas.  You are one of the most important components in this process for us to be successful as an organization.  It is not about the board but what you can do as an individual that will make the difference and help our students prosper.

Please feel free to contact me or any board member at any time. Our contact information is listed on the website.
