For the upcoming Legislative Session, I will be taking on the challenge of reforming education to ensure every child in Wisconsin has access to a quality education.
This week, Senator Devin LeMahieu named me as the new chair of the Senate Committee on Education. I am excited about the opportunity.
As a former teacher, I have always been interested in education policy and reform opportunities. The COVID-19 pandemic has brought forth many new challenges for our parents, educators, and students. I want families to feel confident that their schools are giving children the best possible chance at a bright future and protecting the tax dollars that go along with it.
Next session, I will also serve as Vice-Chair of the Senate Committee on Elections, Election Process, and Ethics, as a member of the Senate Committee on Judiciary and Public Safety, as a member of the Senate Committee on Universities and Technical Colleges, and on the Joint Committees on Retirement Systems and Legislative Council.
