Biographical Info:



If you’ve paid any attention over the last couple of years it has become obvious that there is little to no voter representation from the federal government all the way down to our local school boards. Administrators have no intention of encouraging the teaching of basics but rather choose to adopt convoluted curriculum focused on gender confusion, hatred of America and one another, and other extreme topics that will only endanger our children. Our local superintendents claim that there is no CRT in the classrooms but fail to inform the community that CRT is not a specific class. It is embedded throughout the current curriculum (Social Emotional Learning). They claim to follow the laws put forth by the state of AZ about transgenders in sports, bathrooms and locker rooms but what happens when the federal government threatens their funding? My platform is simple: Parental Rights, Back to Basics, Protect our Students. If we keep these at the forefront, we can steer education back to education.

Question Response Comments/Notes
1. Requiring school officials, including teachers, to inform parents about their child’s social, mental, emotional, or physical health S
2. Allowing parents to opt their children out of activities or lessons they find offensive to their personal, moral, or religious beliefs S
3. Increasing state and local taxes to provide more funding for schools and school facility projects O* Our wallets are currently stretched to the max! I believe in first going to the budget and figuring out if there is anything we can do without. The next step would be bonds and overrides. If the board starts listening to the parents of the community, the parents feel valued and maybe more generous - we could possibly pass bonds and or overrides. Taxes should never be raised without voter approval.
4. Requiring signed permission from a parent before a student may participate in any sexuality related instruction, activities, or clubs. S
5. Allowing all parents to use tax credits, vouchers, or education savings accounts to enable children to attend any public, charter, private, homeschool, or online academy S* Seems contradictory since I'm running for a public school board seat, however I feel that if we can get our schools at a competitive level, parents will be more open and willing to send their child to public school. Let's be #1!
6. Requiring full-day kindergarten for all students O* I think the option should be available but not required.
7. Mandating sex education classes for 5th-12th grade students O* Nothing should be mandated. The option shouldn't be available until 7th grade and parents can opt-in to the class.
8. Allocating teacher pay raises based upon merit rather than providing uniform salary schedule increases based upon years of teaching or additional credentialing (e.g. masters degrees) -* Becoming a teacher is amazing and sacrificial! This issue is a multi-faceted issue that requires additional research. I do believe there should be different ways for both successful teachers and teachers with longevity to be rewarded.
9. Implementing policies to allow students and faculty to use the restroom, locker room, and shower room that aligns with their gender identity O
10. Teaching what is known as diversity, equity, inclusion (DEI); social, emotional learning (SEL); or critical race theory (CRT) in public schools. O
11. Increasing academic (curriculum) transparency by requiring each public school to post online for parents and the public a list of all instructional materials being used in the classroom. S
