As an educator, the injustices that people deal with on a daily basis stare Michelle directly in the face, with students who don’t get enough to eat at home, whose family cannot afford to take their children to the doctor or stay home from work when they are sick. These are issues that students face and they are issues that families face. No one should face the difficulties of finding jobs that pay a living wage and access to health care. Prioritizing a quality public education for all students and respect for the education system and its employees is extremely important to Michelle. A robust, supportive, and equitable system will remove barriers for students to give them a strong start in society. Most importantly, Michelle is running for House District 24 because voters deserve someone who works for them, who cares about them. who communicates with them; that someone is Michelle.
