I believe educational experience and a degree in education are highly valuable to serving on the School Board. However, since being elected I have often thought a law degree, an accounting degree, and a construction license would be beneficial as well. This week I've needed to add a degree in communication to my list! Recently, I was on the Rude Awakening 94.3. This week I appeared on WBIR on Thursday night to discuss the Superintendent's evaluation protocol. You can see that story here. On Saturday night I filmed a segment with WBIR about the hiring of a Broad Academy Fellow. On Sunday I was on Inside Tennessee to discuss the budget. (That segment isn't up yet.) I appreciate each of these opportunities to advocate for the children, families and educators of Knox County. I want to again thank the voters of District 7 for giving me this opportunity! As always, let me here your thoughts on these important issues!
