We did it! Thank you to my amazing team, all of our supporters and volunteers who worked so hard, and to everyone who voted to continue our progress. We could not have done it without your hard work and dedication over the last few months.

The election results validate the progress we have made, but we are not done...there is still more to do. I look forward to an even brighter future while I continue to work with teachers, parents and our community to improve Louisiana’s educational system for all children.
