Children’s welfare is my top priority, therefore I stand with teachers.
For over 75 years, the Chicago Teachers Union has been at the forefront of advocating for teachers, students, and parents in our neighborhood schools. Over the summer, I toured schools across the District and saw first-hand how important it is that our students have access to nurses, librarians, and counselors. I saw schools with tablets and I saw others with paint chipping in crowded first grade classrooms. I talked to teachers who have given everything to their classrooms, often operating as a counselor and emergency food provider, and I heard the desperation for more resources to help our children.
