Northwest Maricopa Region Director

vacant

My name is Jackie Edmonds,  I am a mom of 2 boys. I started my PTA journey 3 years ago when I saw my preschooler's PTA was having a bingo night. I signed up to be the treasurer (as I love spreadsheets), thinking I was heading in for bake sales and book fairs. Two months later I went to my first Arizona state PTA convention. I signed up for a class on advocacy thinking that I would listen but advocacy wasn't my thing. Whelp, after that class I signed up for everything I could find. It ignited a passion in me I never knew I would have. I am so excited to join all of you amazing role models. We are going to do great things together.
