ST. PETERSBURG, FL – Caprice Edmond, candidate for Pinellas County School Board, District 7 has received the endorsement of the Pinellas Classroom Teachers Association (PCTA-PESPA), the union for teachers and support professionals. 

“I am proud my candidacy for School Board has been recommended by teachers themselves, as they are the ones who know me and my approach best,” said Edmond. “Having teachers and school personnel behind me validates that my lived experience as an educator, parent, and community leader adds significant value to my ability to advocate for policy changes.”
