The future of our state hinges on the quality of our public education system. As a conservative Republican, I have always advocated for transparency and accountability in education. That means we must empower parents, provide for children, and recruit and retain the best and brightest educators and administrators. As a member of BESE, I’m committed to fighting everyday to improve our public education system for the generations to come.
Early Childhood Literacy and Numeracy: Setting robust foundations in literacy and numeracy between early childhood and 3rd grade is a mission close to my heart. Every child in our district deserves a solid start to guide them toward lifelong learning and achievement.
Teacher Recruitment and Retention: I am staunchly committed to ensuring our children have the best educators. By offering competitive salaries, comprehensive professional development, and a nurturing work environment, we can attract the best and make sure they're here to stay.
Reliable Accountability System: I am advocating for a reliable accountability system to ensure our schools are performing at their best. One that is easy to understand and useful to parents, teachers, superintendents, and school boards. This way, we can consistently measure, assess, and improve the educational experience we offer our children.
School Choice: Every child's learning journey is unique. I believe in empowering parents with school choice, ensuring they can select the best educational environment tailored to their child's needs.
Workforce Development: Beyond foundational academic skills, I am set on bridging the gap between our schools and the workplace. Preparing our young adults to be both academically proficient and career-ready is a top priority.
