A Spirit of Excellence

David believes that investing in our young people means investing in our future. A proud graduate of Prince George’s County Public Schools, he is disheartened by the current state of our facilities and the division between our schools and the neighborhoods where they are located. David is committed to improving education infrastructure so that every classroom is well-built, mold-free, and equipped with everything from basic supplies to the latest teaching technology.

 

David understands that investing in education isn’t just about physical resources -- it’s also about supportive services. As Maryland Director of Share Our Strength’s “No Kid Hungry” initiative, he worked with school faculty, elected officials, and community leaders to expand meal access to tens of thousands of kids who are food insecure. David will fight for more training and professional development opportunities for teachers, especially those who teach non-native English speakers. He will also increase resources dedicated to keeping parents informed of school and curricular changes so that they can better support their students at home.

 

As your Delegate, David will:

  • Fight for every school construction dollar to renovate and rebuild our aging schools, upgrade our existing centers of learning, and provide our children with a world-class learning environment
  • Focus on grants to improve teacher retention, improve educator training, and provide our classrooms with the resources they need to succeed
  • Invest in wrap-around services for schools that provide critical social services and community integration to students in need
