It is time for positive changes in Idaho education

Over the last few months, I’ve been thinking a lot about whether I should run for the position of head of public education. Nowadays, there seems to be a slippery slope to share thoughts about campaigns and elections. We also clearly hear that you need to stay in your lane. Well, I guess that’s my strip. I was a teacher in Idaho for 27 years when I served in three different rural school districts of Idaho and also served as a deputy principal in the Idaho Department of Education. I also served as Gooding County Commissioner for four years. Education in the Idaho countryside is my helm, and it is from this perspective that I express my interest in electing Debbie Critchfield our next head of state education.

I have known Debbie for over 15 years. We worked together on the Idaho Double Credit Task Force when she was a member of the school board in Cassia County, and I worked in the State Department of Education. Even then, it was clear how much she cared about Idaho’s children and about creating opportunities and access for all students. As a rural educator, this is what I want for our students in rural Idaho. They deserve access and opportunities like any other student. Debbie brings vision, a willingness to collaborate and really listen, and the ability to stand up for us and truly be a leader.

It’s time for a positive change in Idaho’s education, and Debbie Critzfield is a change. Please join me in supporting Debbie on May 17th.
