Democracy isn't easy. Democracy requires work. As a member of a democracy, you must stay informed on both sides of an issue. Most importantly, you should be active. I am not speaking about just voting, although this is important. I mean that we should all be a part of the conversation.
And that is why I am working on being on the Columbia County School Board. I want to make a difference.
With the exception of a year, I have been a teacher or a student for my entire life. I have taught on many different levels. I have been a middle school teacher (okay, for one semester for student teaching...because of this, I have a profound respect for middle school teachers), high school, undergraduates and graduate students. I have coached soccer in youth leagues and high school. Education is in my blood.
