I am truly grateful for the endorsement of the Illinois Federation of Teachers! As an educator, I know firsthand how important it is for young people to have a solid education. It is the foundation of their future and our economy needs to have an educated work force. Extending educational opportunity to all is not just something that is required by our economy, it is the right thing to do and one of the most fundamental responsibilities of government. A civil society extends educational opportunity to all of its children.
Teachers serve one of the most important functions… they help our children to grow. A State Representative, I look forward to honoring my partnership with IFT by fighting to improve education in our state and protecting all educators.
