Good schools are the focal point of strong communities. When parents and community members can take pride in the accomplishments of our children, all generations are made stronger. As State Representative I have continued to advocate for equitable school funding that strengthens our schools without breaking our purses. I have attended school board meetings in all three towns, volunteered within both the Rivendell and Bradford school districts and encouraged other community members to get involved by joining a board, spending time in a classroom or serving as a mentor.
My experiences as a teacher, school board member, coach and parent have allowed me to see our schools from the inside and from the outside. I firmly believe we need to do everything we can to protect these precious community resources. As State Representative I continue to work to simplify the school funding system and to make it fairer for rural landowners. I will advocate for policies that recognize the unique financial structure of Rivendell's Interstate school district.
