Who should have the authority to set curriculum and determine resources used in those curricula?

Elected school boards must not abdícate their role in ensuring a challenging and rigorous curriculum in our school district.

Why are you running for this office?

I am running to continue to serve the students, parents and teachers of the FWISD. In many ways we have had a "lost year" for so many students and families. This pandemic has made the job of educators extremely difficult with so many teachers having to do "double duty" of in-person and remote teaching. For both teachers and students this has meant having to learn new skill sets and new approaches to succeed. I plan to be here for another four years to help steady our schools and refocus efforts district-wide on academic performance.

A candidate's personal moral values should not be relevant when considering a candidacy for elective office.
