Former Teacher for Traditional Public Education

Quality education needs to remain a priority in our state. I want to make sure we fund our public schools and support our teachers. I want to improve outcomes and increase educational opportunities in our state. I support traditional public schools. In my family, our kids are enrolled in public schools because good public schools will provide them with the education they need to succeed. Good public schools are the foundation of a strong community.

I want to help Lindbergh, Mehlville, and Rockwood school districts continue their excellence in education by preventing funds being diverted from their already cash-strapped budgets. It is sad and frustrating that we have a state school board that isn’t functioning at the present, and that public school resources are being taken away.

Early childhood education is key for a child’s development.  I would like to see free full-day kindergarten in Lindbergh school district, as well as expanded early childhood education programs to serve all children in the 96th.
