Investing in public education contributes to the well being of our students, our community, and our society in general.
My children were fortunate to participate in the arts and athletic programs. I will advocate for investing in both the arts and athletic programs.
I will work with our community, our representatives, local companies, and volunteers to invest time, money, and other resources into our public schools.
I will advocate for Early Childhood Education so that each has an opportunity to begin elementary school with the greatest opportunity for success.
I grew up understanding the importance of helping students feel successful and to participate at all levels and abilities. I am a strong advocate for Special Education.
As a teacher I have experienced lock-down drills with students for over a decade. I have seen how the threat of gun violence affects our students.
Each of our students deserves a safe school environment, which I will continue to strongly advocate for.
I will monitor and evaluate school discipline practices, finding ways to prevent and resolve issues. And I will ensure students have sufficient access to school counselors.
I will champion strong technology resources to improve learning and engagement.
I will advocate for a careful balance of technology and classroom interaction between students and teachers.
Small class sizes prove that we care about investing in our students. It gives each student the opportunity to develop a healthy and strong relationship with their teachers and each other.
We must value our entire school staff. I will advocate for retaining quality support staff, each of whom plays a critical role in the success of our students' education.
