As an undergraduate, I taught Anatomy for the Berkeley Unified School District and Physical Education for the Oakland Unified School District. Also, I was a Substitute Teacher educating pre-K to high school students for the Austin Unified School District. I have worked in programs to improve education for children with disabilities and their families at the state, county and local level. I will bring this background to close the gap and fully fund Public Education. This includes:
Recruiting, retaining and supporting Wake County educators and administrators; school psychologists, social workers, nurses and school mental health professionals; school bus drivers; and all non-certified and school staff.
Investing in Classroom Learning by funding textbooks, digital resources, and instructional materials and supplies.
Committing to the highest level of educational preparation and experience by investing in school construction; school safety; universal Pre-K; school lunch programs; Art, Music, Physical Education and STEM; and Early College.
