Public Education

My parents chose to raise their family in Newton because of its outstanding schools. Recently, however, our school district, like those in many other communities, has faced hardship and seen its funding from the state repeatedly fall short of its needs. 

I am a proud product of the Newton Public School System. As your State Representative, I will be committed to ensuring that our schools are properly funded and our teachers have the resources they need. 

If elected, I will fight to ensure every child can attend a quality school and receive the education they deserve. This includes:

Pushing for policies that prioritize education funding at the state level, ensuring our schools in Newton receive adequate resources to maintain and improve educational standards.​

​Advocating for fair and competitive wages for teachers, paraprofessionals, and school staff in Newton. By ensuring they are fairly compensated, we can attract and retain the best educators who play a critical role in our students' success.

​Championing initiatives that promote equity and inclusion in our schools. Supporting programs that close achievement gaps, provide necessary resources for special education, and ensure equal access to educational opportunities for all students regardless of background.

Ensuring that our education system adapts to prepare students for the demands of the modern job market. I will support curriculum enhancements and partnerships with local businesses to ensure students gain the skills and knowledge necessary for success in the 21st-century economy.
