Nevada is my home. I believe the constituents in my district deserve an assembly person that will fight for the future of Nevada. As an educator, I have watched the government legislate what happens in the classroom regarding instruction and assessment. In the past ten years, it has become apparent that many of these legislators are implementing practices and procedures that increase paperwork but do not improve education. I will work hard to ensure that our children are receiving the very best education possible to prepare them for college and the work place. I will be the voice for educators, students and parents. These children will soon be the leaders of our nation. It is imperative that public education provides quality instruction and produces highly trained individuals for the future of our country.
