Education

What is the function of the local school board?

School boards are charged with approving policy decisions that affect what students learn, how students are taught, how learning is measured, how teachers are supported with professional development, how funds are managed, and how effectively the community is engaged around student learning.

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

This responsibility lays on the State, in a effort to try to standardize this I believe the authority to set curriculum and determine resources should remain with the state, but should be really inspected and regulated more.

Please list in order the following priorities in relation to the role of a K-12 public school (omitting any that do not apply): Mathematics, Information Technology, Science, Political Activism, Personal Finances, Gender Identity, Physical Fitness, American History, Critical Race Theory, Language Arts, Art & Music, Vocational Learning, Sexuality, Foreign Language, Social Emotional Learning

Social Emotional Learning, Vocational Learning, Personal Finances, American History, Language Arts, Art & Music, Foreign Language, Mathematics, Information Technology, Science, Physical Fitness,

Our state should participate in the nationwide Common Core standards for high-school graduation.

Agree   

Schools should use Social Emotional Learning (SEL) curriculum and resources to teach emotions, values, and relationships.

Strongly Agree   

I support the teaching of the 1619 Project emphasizing slavery and racism as the foundation of American history.

Agree   

When students are taught courses such as Comprehensive Sex Ed (CSE) or Social Emotional Learning (SEL), they must opt-in with written parental permission.

No Answer   

Parents are the ultimate authority in their child’s education and should be able to freely pursue whatever educational options they deem best for their child.

Strongly Agree   


Values

No school official should be involved in the sexual transitioning of a student. All issues on this subject should be referred to the parents of the student.

Strongly Agree   

Judeo-Christian values established a framework of morality that is necessary for our system of limited government.

No Answer   

Teachers should not use alternative names and pronouns without parental permission.

Agree   

Therapy to help children turn from unwanted same-sex attraction or gender dysphoria should be banned.

No Answer   

I support allowing students to use public restrooms, showers, and changing rooms, and to participate in athletic competition based on the gender with which they identify instead of biological sex.

No Answer   

No healthcare diagnosis or treatment, whether mental, reproductive, or otherwise, should be given to a child without first receiving written consent from the parent.

No Answer   

Who is responsible for teaching sexual education to children, and what is the appropriate age when it should be taught?

The right to teach sexual education is of the parents, it is also up to the parents to determine the most adequate time to do so.

If you support the teaching of Sex Ed, please answer the following question: Sexual education should include these topics (list all that apply and add your own, if needed) -- Physical and emotional health outcomes; contraceptive methods; consent; abstinence; sexual orientation and gender identity; human anatomy/the reproductive system; abortion methods and side effects; stages of pregnancy and fetal development; sex acts and pleasures of sex

Parents reserve this right.

Briefly describe your spiritual beliefs and values.

I believe that we have all received the greatest gift which is life. I respect all religions and religious views.


Qualifications

Why are you running for this office?

***TAKING CARE OF OUR OWN*** Our maintenance and nutrition staff are gravely underpaid. These individuals represent the backbone of our schools that keep our schools running especially during the pandemic. It is a grave injustice that we cannot do right by them by providing them decent wages. **Restructure SAC (in school & out of school suspension)** Currently students with disciplinary issues are kept here with meaningless work to do and being forgotten. **Making sure the school Bands obtain newer uniforms more often** Our band kids march and perform in their band uniforms in these hot temperatures. Naturally sweating is bound to occur. We make our kids wait 2-3 years for new uniforms, and in the meantime force them to continue using old uniforms. **Enhancing our communication with Americans with disabilities** Introducing American Sign Language as an available course in Aldine. Allowing our students the opportunity to communicate with people from all walks
