Education is the bedrock of a thriving community and democracy. Every Missouri child should have access to a quality public education regardless of zip code. As your representative, I will fight to protect and strengthen our public schools.

I have seen firsthand the effects of a quality education. I would not be where I am today without the countless educators who pushed and nurtured me along the way. As an educator, I worked to ensure all my students had the chance to reach their full potential. As your representative, I will work even harder to ensure all Missouri students have that same opportunity. 

To ensure every student has this opportunity, I will fight for a curriculum that is inclusive and relevant, for the resources our students and educators need to succeed, and for fair compensation for the educators and staff to put in the hard work day in and day out.
