We would like to recognize the Professional Educators of Iowa as our current Member Spotlight. Professional Educators of Iowa is a membership organization that consists of teachers, coaches, administrators, and many other professional educators. Their objectives are for professionalism and doing what is best for students. They represent their members with legal protection if such grievances should occur. They may also lobby for issues related to labor laws as well as education laws. They have an annual conference in summer that gives educators valuable information about advancing their careers.
This long time member of the Iowa JumpStart coalition is represented by Jim Hawkins and Mark Felderman. They have been huge supporters of Financial Literacy and are wonderful volunteers to accomplishing our mission.
