One of the hallmarks of a strong economy is an educated workforce. This can be traditional collegiate education or vocational education. I have worked as an educator for the past 16 years. It has been humbling to work with parents and children in this position of trust to help educate the next generation of Americans. Education truly works best with parents, educators, and students all working together. I support innovation in education and am grateful for the work being done in charter, traditional public, private, and homeschool education. Each child is different and I support innovation and solutions to provide the best education possible to our youth. I am proud of of my work as an educator and grateful for the opportunity to support parents in the education of their children. Nothing is more rewarding than seeing a child’s eyes light up as they learn, grow, and gain confidence.
