Question #9: Our Educational system and teachers need support..Will you stand in support with teachers?
Yes, our educational system and teachers need support. And, yes I will stand with our teachers.
After my recovery I moved to American Samoa where I spent a year teaching. I taught High School mathematics focusing on Algebra 1 & 2; as well as educating Junior High students about the importance of Art- focusing on Art History, Art Appreciation, and Ceramics.
I loved being a teacher, I loved watching children and young adults learn. I enjoyed teaching so much - I worked with local business to feature local artwork from children/students on their calendars. Even helped create an island wide contest to allow the students artwork to be featured on the calendars. Raising funds to give the top three students prizes: ranging from a bike to a fishing-poles.
Missouri ranks 49th in starting teacher pay. Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education showed only about a third of teachers hired these days stay on the job for at least five years.. Missouri has the second-lowest average starting salary for teachers in the nation.
Missouri checks in at an average starting salary of $31,842, according to the State Board of Education this week. Kansas is at $34,883; Iowa is at $35,766; Kentucky stands at $36,494 and Mississippi comes in at $34,780. The U.S. average: $38,617.
When in congress I will stand with teachers and our educational system. I know that the children are our future. I know the importance of having a good, a great teacher. I stand with our students, I stand with our teachers, I stand for Education.
I am running for office to be the change I want to see. Thank you for your support and VOTE. #VoteWisdom4Congress
