What makes you the best candidate (300 words or less)?

I have taught mathematics and coached in Brevard County for over 26 years. I believe this gives me a perspective on students that will help in the decision making process as we move into this new age of education. I have experienced first hand what the implementation of district and state mandates have on schools, teaching and children. As a military officer I have put our country first. I have valuable experience that can be used to shape the decisions that must be made to continue to keep Brevard Schools the best!
