Invest In Public Schools
Investing in public education contributes to the well being of our students, our community, and our society in general. It is a investment that pays off.
I will work with our community, our representatives, local companies, and volunteers to invest time, money, and other resources into our public schools.
Retaining Quality Teachers
As the nation faces a teacher shortage and teachers are feeling undervalued and overwhelmed, I will advocate for attracting and retaining our valuable teachers.
I will listen to our teachers and find out what they need to be most effective in their classrooms. I will support them as the best advocates for their students.
Equity in Education
The purpose of public education is to educate every student who walks through our doors.
I will work with our community to ensure that every student in every school has what they need to feel safe, secure and successful.
I will support strong technology resources so that students gain the skills necessary for their future.
I will advocate for a careful balance of technology and classroom interaction between students and teachers, as well as a balance with real life experiences.
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.
I will continue to advocate for the safe school environment each of our students deserves.
Small Class Sizes
Small class sizes prove that we care about investing in our students. Small class sizes give each student the opportunity to develop a healthy and strong relationship with their teachers and with each other.
I will advocate for small class sizes to allow for more individualized attention for our students.
I will advocate for retaining quality support staff, each of whom plays a critical role in the success of our students' education.
