Why is public education advocacy important to you?
Public Education is the cornerstone of our Democratic way of life and it should not be sold to the highest corporate bidder.
As an advocate, what accomplishment have you found most satisfying?
As a Vice Pres., COPE Chair and now President of Anderson Federation of Teachers 519 it has been my honor and pleasure to lobby, walk in campaigns, host campaign functions and help elect pro-public education leaders like Glenda Ritz and Melanie Wright. It has also been very rewarding to negotiate policies that benefit our children, our school district and our entire teaching /support staffs.
