Why are you running for Weatherford ISD Place 6 trustee?
I have a firm belief in children and family. Children are the most precious commodity in our community. They are our future leaders, parents, school teachers and so much more. We all have a direct interest in making certain that every child receives a great education and a good foundation in life. To do so, we must ensure that each child here in Weatherford ISD has every opportunity at success that we are able provide. It takes so many to make this happen. No one person alone could set out and accomplish such a feat. I believe in our kids and want to pull up my sleeves and work to make all possible for them.
What are your thoughts on House Bill 5 and its impact on education standards?
I am very excited that House Bill 5 gives students an opportunity to begin thinking about their future and set some goals. However, I also like the flexibility that is built into House Bill 5 so that a student can change their mind and change paths. I love the fact that House Bill 5 requires the parents to be involved in that process with their children. The most exciting news is that Weatherford ISD will be offering all of the endorsements to students right away. Not all schools are able to that. My only concern was whether we currently have enough counselors at WISD to handle this massive undertaking of meeting with each student and counseling them through their plan.
