As a Social Worker and former Educator, I have seen firsthand the long-term devastation inequitable policies can have on our youth and their families. It is time that our students in Montgomery County receive a fair and just education that prepares them for the real world. It is time that our teachers are given a reason to stay in the County, through professional development and the ability to lead their own schools. It is time our families are supported through their own journeys, and that they are given the tools needed to achieve whatever success looks like for them. My professional experience makes me qualified to be that candidate, and I am the right candidate at the right time to fight for all those groups to receive exactly that.
