The largest teachers union in Utah has chosen a new executive director.

Lisa Nentl-Bloom, who spent the last eight years working as an organizational specialist for the National Education Association, will begin work Sept. 1 for the Utah Education Association (UEA). In 2007, she was assigned to work with the UEA on a special project for nine months, according to a UEA news release.

Nentl-Bloom has a master's degree in education and a bachelor's degree in English and secondary education. She also taught for 15 years in Minnesota.

Nentl-Bloom replaces Mark Mickelsen, who retired Friday.
