i.t.a. Foundation Elects New President


Last May, Shelley Jerviss, i.t.a. coordinator in Houston Public Schools, may have thought she was retiring after 43 years as an educator, but that plan was short lived. On April 6, 2017, Shelley was elected President of the i.t.a. Foundation in New York.

With her years of teaching experience and advanced training as a K-12 Reading Teacher, Shelley brings a wealth of experience to her new role. When Houston High School received its first i.t.a. grant in 1994, Shelley enthusiastically joined the leadership team.

She was elected to the Board of Directors of the i.t.a. Foundation in 2001 and has frequently served as a trainer for new i.t.a. programs sponsored by the Foundation.
