Empowering Our Teachers

The Teachers and Staff at each school are the engines that drive your child's education! We need to make sure we are investing more than whats necessary in order to retain the best and brightest educators in the nation.

Teacher Assisting a Student

In order to prioritize the empowerment of our teachers and staff, I intend to do the following:

  • Increase salaries to a level that will help attract and retain great talent.

  • Build on what the state has been doing over the last three years but we have to get the salaries up to a level that represents the teacher and the staff as the professionals they are. 

  • Invest in more paid days to help teachers plan and prepare for the school year.

  • Work to provide child care for the teachers to cover the increased days to plan.

  •  Invest in more professional development for the teachers and the paraeducators.

  •  Improve safety and improve student behavior in the classroom
