Teacher. Coach. Problem Solver.
A Teacher in
for Our Students
WHY I'M RUNNING
Mesa County kids deserve certified educators in every classroom.
For the past several years, nearly 30 teaching positions in this district have remained unfilled. Our district has decided to cut these positions rather than fix the problems that left classrooms empty. This decision hurts students and staff. It leads to larger class sizes and secondary teachers teaching subjects outside their training.
Increased class sizes and fewer teachers puts all our students at a greater disadvantage. We have too many students unable to reach their full potential. Directing more resources to our classrooms will make sure all our students get what they need to have a shot at life.
Accountability for Administration
Too often our District only goes to the community once major decisions have already been made. The leadership model of the District needs more listening to students, parents, teachers and the community. I promise to bring the community’s voice to the board, not the administration’s voice to the community.
