My four years as Georgia’s State School Superintendent and my three years as a local superintendent have given me the experience to lead Georgia’s schools through these troubled times.
I have displayed leadership at every level of education. For years I led from the classroom as a teacher. While leading as Georgia’s State School Superintendent I took a leadership role among the nation’s other state school superintendents, helping influence national education policy.
Education is the key to success. That has never been more true than it is today. There are incredible opportunities waiting for our children. We need an education department that helps local school districts better meet the needs of our students.
Every Child Matters
I want our children to have every opportunity for success. I will work every day to make sure we are providing our children with the skills they need to become the workforce of the future that will power Georgia’s economy. I understand that every child matters.
