Biographical Info:

I am originally from Texas and graduated from the University of Houston, where I met my husband, Chris. I have been creating Sales and Marketing Strategies for Hospitality Organizations and later opened my own Marketing Consultancy where I focused on Nonprofits and worked as the Director of Marketing for a successful CRM SAAS technology company. Somewhere in the midst of that, we had four amazing kids who are now between the ages of seven and eleven years old. As parents, we have worked with our children to develop passionate pursuits and help them create and run businesses of their own, in age-appropriate ways.

Statement:

Like most parents who made it through the 2020 lockdowns, I have spent the last two years baffled by what we have uncovered in our schools. Critical Race Theory, Social Emotional Learning, Comprehensive Sexual Education, grooming, exposure to Anti-American propaganda and woke school boards have all come to light. I want to get to the bottom of where our education budget is being allocated, ensure that my kids and yours are being taught reading, writing and arithmetic AT GRADE LEVEL, and get rid of the indoctrination. Last year, I had to pull my child with learning disabilities out of school and homeschool her using Special Education instruction material because, in the Second Grade, no one would teach her to read. I was still paying taxes, but being forced to act as a Special Educator Teacher on my own dime because the school refused to listen to me. After I pulled my daughter from school, I was told that money is set aside to help children like mine, but that I needed to sue the school in order to gain access to it. The money is there. This is disgusting. I believe that money should follow the child so that if you find yourself in a failing school, parents can be empowered to make choices that benefit their children first and foremost. It just shouldn’t be this hard to receive a quality education in our great state. Somehow, money is getting stuck at the Administration level and never trickling down to qualified teachers who are fighting for their pupils, or to our children.
