As a retired teacher, I am supporting Tim Walz for governor. Before being elected to Congress, Tim was a geography teacher and football coach at Mankato West High School. He knows what educating our young people is like. He knows how important public education is in Minnesota. He has stood up against efforts to route educational funds to privatized voucher systems.

Tim knows the importance of having properly licensed teachers in the classrooms across our state.  Knowing this important factor in quality education, Tim has spoken out against the teacher licensure law that lets less qualified individuals teach our kids.

Let’s elect a governor who knows what it is like to be in a classroom filled with students of various needs, talents and backgrounds. Unless you have been there, you will never understand what it is like. Tim has been there and he understands all the dynamics.
