Education is the cornerstone of a thriving economy and a healthy society. 


In Raleigh, Tess will champion excellence and safety in our schools and work to ensure every public school in District 1 has the resources needed to provide its students with the education they deserve. This includes providing our children with the best quality facilities and resources both inside and outside of the classroom. Equally important is that our community and technical colleges, as well as our state universities, receive the funding and resources needed to best serve their students and prepare them for a bright, professional future.


Tess will work hard to ensure our hard-working teachers receive the pay and training necessary to stay in North Carolina and educate the next generation.
