Executive Board Members
Danielle George – President
Hey everyone! My name is Danielle George, and I am so blessed to be the 2021-2022 FEA President, praise God! I am a senior here at FIU majoring in Early Childhood Education and pursuing a certificate in Latin American and Caribbean studies. My dream is to become an elementary school teacher and change the lives of youth within education. My passion is both children, along with culture and diversity. I strongly believe in the saying “you don’t know where you’re going unless you know where you can from”. I aspire to bring this cultural inclusion within the classroom! I am so excited to see what this year brings with FEA & working amongst amazing students with the same passion for becoming educators!
Kayla Render – Vice President
Hi, my name is Kayla, and I am a senior here at Florida International University majoring in Elementary Education with a minor in Psychology. A little bit about myself is that I love animals. I currently have a dog and two amphibians, but I will own more in the future. My family is from the Bahamas and Haiti but, I have been in Miami my whole life. I got interested in children when I was in my sophomore year in high school when I had the opportunity to mentor two wonderful elementary school girls and working for a year at a daycare. Those girls living conditions was not the best and there were some days they did not eat but they came to school with smiles on their faces every day. They taught me what resilience truly is. I hope to carry on their teachings and the teachings from my professors to my future students, as well as when I get into my dream career as a superintendent.
Anthony Chavez – Treasurer
Hey everyone! I am happy to be on the FEA e-board and help the club. I was born and raised in Miami, Florida by two Cuban Immigrants. My mother eventually became a professor at Miami-Dade college and would consistently tell me good things about the teaching profession. That coupled with my belief that teaching is the best way for people to lift themselves out of poverty and better their lives made me also want to be a teacher and work with others who want to encourage the same.
Melissa Romero – Events Director
Hello. I am Melissa Romero, and I am a senior at FIU, majoring in Elementary Education. I’m so excited to serve on the E-Board of FEA because I’ll get to share my passion for education and my experiences with our members and with other’s interested in education. Post graduating, I plan on pursuing a master’s in educational leadership so that I can one day serve as a school administrator. I’m hoping that I can contribute to this team by sharing my views on education and helping others find the same passion I feel. I’m looking forward to an incredible and insightful year!!
Sara Rosen – Marketing Director
Hi! My name is Sara Rosen. I am half Italian and half Cuban. My great grandma left Poland as World War II was happening because she wanted her family to be safe, so she went to Cuba because she couldn’t get into the United States at first. I will be your Marketing Director. I'm currently a third-year Early Childhood Education major. I want to get a second degree in public relations and advertising. I really like digital marketing, and I want to do something in social media or something else. I’m still debating. In my free time, I like to do art, travel, and go shopping.
