California Educator Re-elected to NEA Executive Committee

Sheridan to continue advocating for great public schools at the national level

BOSTON - July 03, 2017 -

The majority of the 7,500 delegates to the National Education Association Annual Meeting voted to keep California teacher, George Sheridan, on the Executive Committee. Sheridan was first elected in 2014 and is currently serving a three-year term. He will begin serving another three-year term this September.

Im honored to continue my work on NEAs Executive Committee, said Sheridan. By listening to members, potential members and the communities we can strengthen our organization, build strong alliances with our communities and create the schools our students deserve.

Sheridan, a K-12 school teacher in Black Oak Mine Unified School District in Garden Valley, Calif., has taught every grade from first through 12th during his career. He has also taught graduate courses at California State University, Sacramento and University of California, Davis.

George is committed to the fight for great public schools as a basic right for every student, Lily Eskelsen Garca, NEA president, said. I am confident he will draw on his years of experience on the Committee as well as in the classroom to deliver the promise of a quality public education for all students.

Sheridan received his bachelors degree from Loyola University in Los Angeles and a masters in education from the University of Southern California.

The NEA Executive Committee consists of nine members three executive officers and six members elected at-large by the Representative Assembly.
