Aberdeen Middle School teacher Ryan Burbey was elected president of the Harford County Education Association Thursday night, and will head the union representing 3,200 teachers in Harford County Public Schools.
Burbey was elected by union representatives in a special election held to fill the vacancy created by the resignation in July of Randy Cerveny. Cerveny was elected to a second three-year term as president in 2011, defeating Burbey with 75 percent of the vote.
Burbey will serve the remainder of Cerveny’s term, which ends in July 2014.
“I look forward to serving the teachers and students of Harford County,” Burbey said in a post on his Facebook page.
Harford County Education Association is the bargaining union for all Harford County Public School teachers, guidance counselors and psychologists, media specialists, occupational therapists, physical therapists, and speech and hearing clinicians.
