Educator Kendall Vaught is serving her second three-year term on the CTA Board. Representing members in parts of Orange and Riverside Counties, she has been elected to serve District M for a term that expires in 2018.
With 39 years of teaching experience, Vaught has taught such diverse subjects as earth, life and physical sciences, computing, art, Spanish and ELL at the middle school level, and grades 3-5 at the elementary level. She has served as Department Chair, Peer Assistance and Review (PAR) panel member and as a Beginning Teacher Support & Assessment (BTSA) coach. At CSU Long Beach she taught in the Science Preparation Department.
Vaught has been involved as president, bargaining team member, and middle school director in her local, the Los Alamitos Education Association, as well as serving three terms on CTA State Council, including serving as Curriculum and Instruction Committee Chair. Additionally, she served on several statewide education committees. A career highlight was serving on the NEA Board of Directors.
Vaught obtained bachelor’s and master’s degrees from UC Santa Barbara, the University of La Verne, the United States International University and CSU Pomona. Having planned a career in the Foreign Service, Vaught says she changed directions after being ‘hooked’ on teaching when she accepted a work-study job at an elementary school while in college.
She lives in Huntington Beach with her husband, Milton, and has two daughters.
