California Needs Montessori Leadership!
My children enjoyed free, Public Montessori Education at our neighborhood school in California for 7 years. This experience made me truly believe in the power of progressive, informed Public Montessori Education. Now I want to help get California back on track, and inspire more teachers to get progressive and innovative with education. Let's give families the opportunity to choose the right school for their child and trust teachers to innovate and lead.
My mother was a teacher, and I grew up in California surrounded by teachers. Eventually I found my way back into the classroom, after attending both private Montessori schools and California Public Junior High and High Schools, I worked at a Montessori School for 7 years, supporting the classroom teachers. Recently, I was an assistant coach on the girls basketball team. I know how to support females. And I believe we need to select male leadership based on the ability to be supportive.
Currently I publish books about Montessori Education and Special Education. I am the proud father of a class of Class of 2021 California Public High School graduate and the proud father to an 8th grade California Public School student. My oldest daughter graduated from North Carolina Public High School.
I love working with children and teachers, and I can't wait to be elected as the new State Superintendent of Public Instruction.
