Vacaville teachers recently voted to elect a Jepson Middle School teacher to lead their union temporarily.
Tracy Begley has been named interim president of the 680-member Vacaville Teachers Association, effective in mid-January, to fulfill the remaining months of current president Moira McSweeney’s term, which ends June 14.
McSweeney made the announcement during a Vacaville Unified governing board meeting Thursday in the Educational Services Center.
A longtime educator, Begley will serve in the role until union members vote again in April. If she is re-elected, she will be president for the 2017-19 term.
