MODSEA President's Message

Welcome to MODSEA!  The Missouri Driver Safety and Education Association is a comprehensive group of teachers and safety advocates who are committed to the improvement and advancement of safe transportation.  

 

My name is Molly Kleiber and I am the current MODSEA President.  I currently teach at Liberty High School in the Wentzville School District.  I have been teaching Driver Education since 2014.  Prior to teaching Driver Education I taught 8th Grade Science for seven years.  I am also a certified sports performance coach, a member of MOSHAPE, and an avid tennis player.  Through teaching driver education, I have received a number of awards and honors from student produced video productions promoting safe driving. In 2016, I helped my school to win $10,000 from Jim Butler Chevrolet by having the most community members pledging to be safe drivers.   I love working with my community and promoting safe driving habits for all members of the community.  

 

Moving forward, one of the goals of MODSEA is to promote the value of driver education by working with the American Driver and Traffic Safety Education Association (ADTSEA) to promote driver education safety, quality instructional practices, and up-to-date driver education information.  MODSEA was working with Missouri State Representative Galen Higdon and his effort to pass legislation (HB 534) to require driver education to get a driver's license. Efforts continue to bring various organizations together in a collaborative manner to advance driver education and safe driving practices. We are working with Janice Rehak at DESE to find solutions to the need for driver education and the shortage of qualified instructors.  Allyn Workman is working with Brett Robinson (ADTSEA) to bring them to Missouri to provide instructor training to us.  Details on this are in the works and more  information to come soon.   With the leadership of the Executive Board, and the support of MODSEA members, we will do our best to promote, improve, and advocate for the need for driver education in Missouri.

 My personal goal is to organize more professional development opportunities for those who teach Driver Education courses.  Our organization is comprised of some of the best driving safety professionals in the state.  I hope to implement the sharing of best practices in our content area and to collaborate on ideas for future MODSEA conference topics.

 

This year (2019) we will have a presentation and information on becoming a certified Driver Education Educator and provide resources for current driver education teachers at the annual MOSHAPE conference at the Lake of the Ozarks on November 8th-10th.  I hope to see you there!   

 

I would like to encourage you to join ADTSEA and to attend the ADTSEA national conference.  You may find information about becoming an ADTSEA member and registering for the ADTSEA conference at www.adtsea.org, click on “Events”, click on box for 2018 ADTSEA Conference.

Feel free to contact me if you have any questions or suggestions for MODSEA.

 

Sincerely,

Molly Kleiber
