    Are you aware that Technology provides our students an opportunity to apply math and science? Thus, it goes a long way towards the STEM imitative!

    With all of the Engineering mandates in the Next Gen Science Standards, it is imperative that we have certified, experienced Technology and Engineering teachers in every school.

    This country MUST have a technologically competent workforce.
    It is NOT enough to know how to use technology. Understanding how it works gives wings to students imagination and creativity to their invention.
    In addition this Junior-Senior High school age students are developmentally ready for hands on learning and there is no more important time to help them demystify our world which is increasingly full of black boxes.

    If you represent me, I will be watching your vote.
    If you would like to know more, please, do not hesitate to contact me personally.
