Hello All!

From the summer I first attended the THOA Conference as a guest, I knew I wanted to be involved in this wonderful organization. 

From member to Area 3 Director, then to President-Elect 2021-2022, and I am humbled and exceptionally proud to represent THOA as your president. 

THOA and its members make teaching Health Sciences an adventure and rewarding labor of love. We share and support one another through our website, Facebook page, and directly through email.

As president, my platform for the next year is increased communication and membership growth. 

By definition, communication is the exchange of information or news. We teach communication in our classrooms, and share our knowledge with patients, family, and other staff.

Without communication, we would be silent and would not grow. So, let's communicate! Reach out to other Health Science instructors, share THOA, and share knowledge.

Our board welcomes new to the below areas:

Area 2- Sharita Harmon

Area 4 E.-Bobbie Kite

Area 5-Jeni Carbone Williams

Area 6-Danielle McDaniel

Congratulations to Drieca Hopkins for her move to Treasurer-Elect and Alisha Smith for her move to President-Elect. We continue to grow and reflect on new ideas and new ways to make THOA strong.

Please watch the website and your emails for communications, and please respond. We love to hear from our members.

Dates to remember:

New Teacher Training- September 19th and 20th in College Station at the Wyndham Garden Hotel

ACTE- see their website for upcoming conferences by region

NCHSE- October 26-28 in Charleston, SC.

THOA 2023 Summer Conference- July 16-20 in College Station at the Texas A&M Hotel and Conference Center

In closing, my contact information is on the website. Do not hesitate to reach out. I will respond. Please go and check out the website. It is all new and will only get better with what it offers.

Be safe, ladies and gentlemen. Our world continues to change for us physically, spiritually, and as educators.

With deepest respect,

M. Michele Knorpp, LVN
THOA President 2022-2023
