Amanda holds an Associate's degree in General Studies from Wallace State Community College, a Bachelor's in English/Language Arts Secondary Education from University of North Alabama and a Master's degree in English Language Arts from University of West Alabama. She currently serves as your elected, statewide ALAPCAE President-Elect, previously serving as ALAPCAE District 2 Representative and ALAPCAE Secretary. She has assisted in planning adult education summer conferences for the past 3 years with ALAPCAE.
Voce inherits the post of President at the closing general session of the 2017 Alabama Adult Education Conference in Birmingham, Alabama, June 2017.
As your 2016-2017 elected ALAPCAE President, I would like to, first, thank you for being a member of ALAPCAE and supporting YOUR adult education professional development association. The ALAPCAE Board is here to serve you. We hope to provide resources and professional development that will address your classroom needs efficiently and effectively. We also strive to recognize outstanding teachers, leaders and GED© graduates from our state. Without YOU, ALAPCAE could not be a strong and successful representative of Alabama’s adult education teachers, staff and administrators. We are currently planning for the 2017 Alabama Adult Education Summer Conference and hope to have updates to share with you soon. ALAPCAE has a rich history dating back almost 40 years. With the diligent work of Dr. Naomi Scales and our Historian, Randall Muck, we hope to be able to share interesting facts and historical significance of Alabama adult education throughout the years.
I want to also recognize our national adult education partner, COABE, Commission on Adult Basic Education. As a member of ALAPCAE, you also receive COABE benefits at no cost. Please vist www.coabe.org for information on scholarships for teachers, teacher of the year awards, program of the year awards and many professional development opportunities available for free. I received a scholarship from COABE in 2012 and was able to put those monies toward completing my Ph.D. in Education. Through that award I was able to become more involved in COABE and now serve as District 3 Representative for Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Mississippi, South Carolina, Tennessee, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. The 2017 COABE National Conference will be held in Orlando, Florida in April. This is a great opportunity to also apply for free conference registration on their website.
As ALAPCAE President, I want to officially welcome you as a member for 2016-2017 and hope that you will continue to take advantage of the benefits of membership as we continue to grow and serve as a strong advocate for adult education in Alabama.
