  • Age-inappropriate instructional materialMasks – never again – ever! Masks destroyed the classroom environment by making it a power struggle between students and staff – I know – I am a high school substitute teacher.  Let’s “tap”/TAPP the Manatee County School System
  • Transparency – building trust between the school board and the community by maximizing the transparency of school system operations and finances
  • Accountability – the school board must hold the school system to the highest standards of financial and professional accountability
  • Participation – the school board must do a better job of providing opportunities for the community to interact with the school board and to feel seen, heard, and appreciated when they speak at school board meetings
  • Patriotism – an ethos of a healthy amount of patriotism should permeate our school system, from the board to the employees to the curriculum. We should all be striving to be just Americans, looking at each other through a lens of character and performance, not race or gender
