“Our work in education is urgent. We will change the current trajectory of our students. All students can learn no matter the circumstance. All students can and will succeed with best practices and systems in place."

“Great teaching is the key to academic and life success. I am motivated to work to ensure that ALL students have access to high-quality education and high capacity teachers no matter where they live." 

“Persistence at the institutional level is the willingness of a school system to stick with it despite slow results, political pressure, new ideas, and systemic inertia or resistance to change.”
