During my time in the Governor’s Office I worked on education initiatives including P- Tech, the Rhode Island Promise, and Prepare RI.  My current work is with the state’s third grade reading goal.  As Senator, Early Childhood Education and Stem (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) Education will be two fundamentals of my education policy. With over a decade in the classroom, I’ve gained a special insight into the education needs of our state’s children, and I recognize the impact that Early Childhood Education and Stem Education can have as students move through K-12 and beyond.
