Jack­son pas­sion­ate about pub­lic ed­u­ca­tion

Sunday Star - - OPINION -

Are you aware of Emily Jack­son, a new can­di­date for the Tal­bot County Board of Ed­u­ca­tion, Dis­trict 4?

Emily is a mother of four, all of whom are cur­rently or will be en­rolled in Tal­bot County Pub­lic Schools. She is pas­sion­ate about pub­lic ed­u­ca­tion, stu­dent and teacher fo­cused, and un­der­stands that we must pro­vide ad­e­quate re­sources for our school sys­tem to be suc­cess­ful.

As a lo­cal en­trepreneur, with a ma­jor in po­lit­i­cal sci­ence, back­ground in pub­lic pol­icy and sup­ported by the Tal­bot County Teach­ers’ As­so­ci­a­tion, she would be a ma­jor as­set to the board of ed­u­ca­tion. Emily Jack­son has rooted her fam­ily and busi­ness in this county and is com­mit­ted to the suc­cess of our chil­dren in TCPS.

My hus­band and I are suc­cess­ful TCPS grad­u­ates and firm be­liev­ers that ev­ery dol­lar you put into pub­lic ed­u­ca­tion, you get back twofold. Stronger foun­da­tions re­sult in brighter to­mor­rows. We are par­ents who also have ele­men­tary age chil­dren who cur­rently or will at­tend TCPS, so it’s im­por­tant to have a board mem­ber that is in tune with what is hap­pen­ing.

Emily will ad­vo­cate for our stu­dents and teach­ers to en­sure their needs are met. From one Tal­bot County Pub­lic School’s mother to an­other, Emily, you have my vote. JEN CARRION Eas­ton
