Meet your two SVEA Candidates for President
Daniel Hendrix

Office of the President

Hello everyone! Thank you for taking the time to find out a little bit about me. My name is Daniel Hendrix, and I am currently on the SVEA Board of Directors as the Eastern Region Representative, as well as the Chapter President for the Old Dominion University SVEA. I am studying to become an Elementary Educator. I am a US Navy veteran, serving 5 years on the USS Carter Hall, with three deployments to the Persian Gulf. Recently, I had the pleasure to attend the NEA Student Leadership Conference, and while there was selected to participate in a ten person panel to discuss the future of our profession with the US Secretary of Education, Arnie Duncan, at the Department of Education in DC. As you can see, I have been provided excellent opportunities to develop and implement my leadership skills for the benefit of those around me. After performing my duties on the SVEA Board of Directors I realized that there was much more that I had to offer this organization. I am committed to this organization, and to the growth and development of each chapter in this state, each chapter president, and every member. I look forward to the opportunity to work with each of you in the coming year!
Stephanie Terezon-President
My name is Stephanie Terezon and I am currently a sophomore at Virginia State University. I am an Interdisciplinary Studies major with a minor in Elementary Education. I am 19 years old and I am from Northern Virginia. I have an immense passion for working with little kids and I have never once thought about becoming anything other than a teacher. I am currently serving as Secretary on the Board of Directors and the experience has been phenomenal. I have served my local chapter as Historian, and I plan to serve the upcoming year as well. I strongly believe in my leadership capabilities, communication skills, and persistence to get things done. Overall, I believe myself to be a competent leader and devoted member.
