As your state senator, I will continue to be a strong advocate for quality education in our schools. I began my teaching career with the Clark County School District 12 years ago. My career has been dedicated to making sure our children receive the best education available. I believe that a good education is the cornerstone to a thriving community. In addition to teaching in the Clark County School District, I have been a part-time instructor at UNLV for the past 12 years. Recently, I have the honor of being a founding board member for Somerset Academy, a very successful Charter School in Las Vegas.
