I was raised by a teacher and then I married one. We must support our teachers better – and it starts with eliminating the over testing of our children and getting more funding directly to the classroom. No teacher should be forced to spend hundreds of dollars from his or her pocket to fund their classroom.
Jared Patterson Campaign Releases Unanimous Support from Little Elm ISD Board of Trustees
(Little Elm, TX) Today, the Jared Patterson for State Representative campaign announced unanimous support and endorsement from every member of the Little Elm ISD Board of Trustees. The announcement comes on the heels of a string of endorsements from prominent local officials. Patterson is running for the Texas House in District 106, a seat being vacated by Rep. Pat Fallon.
Jared Patterson said, “Little Elm is a great community and one of the largest in HD 106. Recently, we announced endorsements from the Mayor and a majority of the Town Council. Now, the entire School Board has joined the team. This has truly been a humbling experience.”
The local ISD officials endorsing Patterson are Board President Melissa Myers, Board Vice President David Montemayor, Board Secretary Jason Olson and Trustees Alex Flores, DeLeon English, Dan Blackwood and Leanna Harding.
Also announcing his endorsement for Jared Patterson is Frisco ISD Trustee Steven Noskin.
Patterson strongly supports Texas teachers and students. His mother taught public school in Whitesboro, Texas for 38 years and his father served three terms on the local school board. His brother serves there now. Leslie Patterson, Jared’s wife, taught public school for six years before deciding to stay at home with their three children. Combined, Jared and Leslie Patterson have more than 90 years of public school teacher experience in their immediate family.
