"I hope to inspire my students to become active participants in the political process. Citizenship, at the very least, requires that we know how our political system works and the rights that we are afforded. Our great Republic requires that citizens be attentive to what our government is and is not doing!"
What many don't know: "I was an exchange student to Mexico City during high school. I have also run for political office."
