Parental sovereignty has been slowly eroded by the board and the State. I can and will fight back for the rights of parents.
There’s an increase in bullying and violence in our schools. Until our schools are safe, our children will not reach their full potential.
Integrity & Honesty
As the practices of school district’s administration come to light, we see deception in their communication. Trust needs to be re-established.
Why Vote for Me
When considering where you should invest your vote, I believe there are five areas that you should assess: experience, faith, heart, strength, and investment. My experience includes thirteen years educating school age students and 4 years educating college level students. My faith is the long standing foundation by which all of my decisions are made. My heart for families is reflected in my service to the community within my church’s children’s ministry.
I recently signed a pledge to rid our school district of policies and plans that undermine parental rights and endanger our children. I encourage other GOP candidates to sign onto this pledge. Read the pledge here.
Our Schools Shape the Future for Our Families and the Community.
Our children are the next generation of leaders in our community. What they learn today impacts our tomorrow; however the current academic levels in our schools don’t reflect a prepared student body. My background in the education of the deaf brings a unique perspective on how we can best reach all children, as we work together to solve present and future challenges.
