Earlier this month I filed for the State Board of Education. Those of you who know me know I don’t need introductions, but for those of you just meeting me let me tell you a little about me.
I’m an expert in math, technology and engineering. I am not a lifetime educator, I live in the real world and want to ensure our children learn skills to prepare them for the real world.
I was a troop leader in the boy scouts for 14 years. I have helped many outstanding young men reach the rank of eagle scout.
I know the value of a hard days work and I want our children to know this as well and to become honest, hardworking tax-payers.
We need a math expert on the SBOE because math is essential in many of the high tech fields that will be key to fulfilling employment.
I believe in the value of teaching children to be rational, logical problem solvers that know how to think and not simply regurgitate answers.
I believe common core has no place in Texas, or anywhere else for that matter.
