Middle School/Jr. High Council


Welcome to the NAEOP Middle School/Jr. High Council webpage! If you work in an office in any middle school or junior high school in the country, you are automatically a member of this council when you join and/or renew your NAEOP membership. As a member, you have access to a nationwide network of those who are on the journey to professional excellence with you.

If this is your first time visiting the NAEOP website, I encourage you to take a few minutes and check out several of the links listed on the homepage. Whether you are a NAEOP member or not, take the time to get to know more about our association and all we have to offer. If you are a NAEOP member, thank you! I recommend you review the information located in our “Members Only” link. It’s a great way to keep in touch with what’s happening in our association. If you are not yet a member, what’s stopping you? Contact me and I’d be happy to explain the details of the benefits of becoming a NAEOP member.

Many of the state associations across our country have fall conferences planned and/or are in the process of finalizing spring conferences. I hope you have the opportunity to participate in some professional development opportunities in your area.

This year, NAEOP President Patricia Stelmach, CEOE, has chosen as her theme, “Putting Your Best Foot Forward With NAEOP.” As educational office professionals in middle school and/or junior high school offices, I encourage you to put your best foot forward each and every day. If you find some tips or ideas that work, please share them with me and I will include them in an upcoming newsletter to all our council members. Put your best foot forward. Reach out to others in your office and encourage them to look into the Professional Standards Program (PSP) NAEOP offers. If you have questions about any other member benefits, or your membership in the Middle School/Jr. High Council, please let me know. I’m here to help you in any way I can.

I look forward to working with President Stelmach and the rest of the NAEOP Governing Board as we each put our best foot forward for you, the NAEOP members.

Lori Schumann, CEOE
Middle School/Jr. High Council Chairman
