It’s back to school for many schools in the valley this month and I wish success for all our students this academic year. This year also brings new hope and resolve to strengthen our education system and create quality opportunities for all students. As an educator myself, I ran for the Arizona House of Representatives because I understand a strong education system is tied to a strong economy. I have worked relentlessly to improve education in Arizona, both in the classroom and at the legislature, and will continue to do so this next year.
