Welcome to our Education Revival!
As a proud military brat and the son of dedicated educators, I saw my father instill a sense of discipline and structure in the lives of his ROTC cadets. My mom, a public school teacher, worked with compassion to teach and mentor generations of students. With those values, I’ve spent the last decade putting low income students on a path to college, first as a teacher, then as college administrator and leader at an education non-profit.
My wife and I will be sending our first child to school in just a few years; like many of you, we want to know that she and her classmates will get a great education. That starts with us working together to create an education revival.
Walking through our schools every day, I’m inspired by the passion of our students, teachers and parents fighting to put our kids on a path to success. But across Duval county, 1 in 3 students don’t graduate on time. Of those who do, only 30% will complete college. We can do better.
Our students deserve leaders - from home to the classroom to the School Board - who will build partnerships, produce results and empower families. I pledge to be that leader for District 4. This August 26th, join the revival, cast your vote for change!
