We must explore every option to find education solutions that enable our children to become good citizens, be productive people, and chase their dreams. As an educator, I want to see my students succeed not just in my class, but in life. I want to see them gain knowledge and skills that empower them in their future endeavors. And I want to see this for all students in Maryland! I will pursue and support policies and legislation that increase use of charter schools, utilize smart financial strategies to fund school construction and maintenance, support quality teachers, reduce standardized testing hours, and remove standards that incentivize teaching to the test. I will support the implementation of curriculums that provide useful, applicable skills and knowledge to students, and I will advocate for vocational and magnet schools that help children find their calling in life. Education opens doors!
