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 Michael Bellers and I am proud to represent MODSEA as the President for 2017- 2019 term.  I have taught Driver Education in the Rockwood School District for the last 28 years and am currently the Driver Education teacher at Summit High School in Fenton, Missouri.  

           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 continues to work with Missouri State Representative Galen Higdon and his effort to pass legislation (HB 534) to require driver education to get a driver license.  Efforts continue to bring various organizations together in a collaborative manner to advance driver education and safe driving practices.  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 classes.  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.

            The MODSEA Executive Board is planning for the state meeting which will be held February 21st, 2018 at the Monsanto Headquarters in St. Louis Missouri.

            I would like to encourage you to join ADTSEA and to attend the ADTSEA national conference July 22 – 25, 2018 in Chicago, IL.  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.
