Meet the newest DET members
We are pleased to announce two appointments to the Sixth Federal Reserve District education team (DET) in Miami and Jacksonville.
Gloria Guzman is the new economic and financial education specialist at the Atlanta Fed's Miami Branch. Since 2001 Gloria has taught AP macroeconomics, economics, finance, accounting, and American government at Monsignor E. Pace High School in Miami, where she established and successfully moderated the Future Business Leaders of America chapter. Prior to teaching at Pace, Gloria was a litigation specialist at AllState Insurance for several years.
Gloria holds a BS in finance and management from Florida International University. Gloria's combination of classroom and corporate experience makes her a great contributor to the Miami team as well as the DET. Gloria will join Marycela Diaz-Unzalu in doing workshops and presentations for teachers in the Miami Branch's zone in south Florida.
Lesley Mace joined the Jacksonville Branch in June as an economic and financial education specialist. Previously an economics instructor and the director of the Center for Economic Education at Auburn University in Montgomery, Lesley holds an MS in economics and a BA in economics and foreign language from Auburn.
Lesley has secondary school experience as an economics teacher and has built relationships with staff at the National Council for Economic Education, other centers around Alabama, and state-level public school administrators. She is very knowledgeable about the Fed and monetary policy. She has worked with Julie Kornegay, economic education specialist in the Birmingham Branch, to facilitate workshops, so she already is familiar with many of the Fed's materials and programs.
The first part of Lesley's assignment will be working with Gary Tapp, the Sixth District economic education director, in leading the Atlanta Fed's initiative to make more effective use of technology in bringing its programs to a broader audience. Lesley will also conduct workshops and make presentations to teachers throughout the Jacksonville Branch's zone in Florida.
