She will also discuss the horrible idea of arming school teachers, cuts to our public education system and the effects of charter schools on our local school system.

Donna has been an advocate for public education all of her life. Once asked by a student, when did she decide to become a teacher, she looked puzzled. Her answer was I didn’t, I’ve always been a teacher.
She has taken her advocacy for a quality public education into the local, state and national arenas. Donna steps up and speaks out for a fair and just democracy. She is a dedicated organizer for equal opportunity for all students to receive a quality public education. She relentlessly advocates for the workforce of America to unite for common goals.
