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 Public Montessori Education. Now I want to inspire more teachers to innovate and lead, so every family has the opportunity to choose Montessori for their child. I want to help create new Public Montessori programs in the state, and spread the positive, child centered, Montessori influence to all schools!
I have been involved in Montessori and alternative education my entire life. 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 private Montessori schools and California Public Junior High and High School, I worked at a Montessori School for 7 years. Currently, I work with teachers and leaders in the field to 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. Recently, I was an assistant coach on the girls basketball team.
I know how to be supportive and I love working with families and teachers. I can't wait to be elected as the new State Superintendent of Public Instruction.
