My wife and I moved to the Roaring Fork Valley in 2019 and think that our valley is one of the greatest places to live in the world! We have four kids, all in the public school system, age 6 up to age 12. My family wants to live in this beautiful place for the rest of our lives—so I am very invested in making sure that the schools here prepare my kids for success. As a certified foster parent, I am extremely passionate about ensuring that all children, regardless of ethnicity, identity, background, or financial situation have an equal opportunity for a safe, happy, and fulfilled life. I believe that parents and schools need to work together to give our kids the best chance for success. Our school board must be transparent, honest, and accountable for the decisions they make—which should be informed by the best interest of the students in our community as well as parent’s concerns and aspirations for their kids. As a parent in this community, I am committed to bringing a positive change to our school system—higher test scores, lower drug use, better teacher benefits, and the parental freedom to have an informed say in your child’s future.
Our kids deserve a high quality education and our parents deserve to be fully informed and active in shaping our childrens’ futures.
