After a 30-year career as a general education elementary school teacher and special education teacher, Liz Cornett packed her bags and headed out to be closer to her sister in Arizona on the same day she retired in June 2006. The terrific weather and the chance to be close to family were just what she needed.
At first, Liz worked several retail jobs and even went back to the classroom for a short time. She got involved in a church and found an instant community. The Holy Scriptures inspired her, and she made the decision to enroll in ministry school.
The Chicago Teachers’ Pension Fund (CTPF) is pleased to welcome Miguel del Valle and Dwayne Truss to the CTPF Board of Trustees. Trustees del Valle and Truss were appointed by the Chicago Board of Education, effective June 26, 2019, through October 31, 2020, to fill the vacancies created by the resignation of Gail D. Ward and Mark F. Furlong.
CTPF is governed by a 12-member Board of Trustees. Six Trustees elected by the active teachers, one Trustee elected by the active principals and administrators, three Trustees elected by the pensioners, and two Trustees appointed by the Board of Education.
