Profile

Personal statement

I recently retired after serving twenty years in the Texas House of Representatives, where I served for the entire time on the House Committee on Public Education. I also served, for three terms, as chair of the education subcommittee of the House Committee on Appropriations, which oversees the budget of k-12 and higher ed. I successfully worked to pass legislation to include open educational resources in the textbook adoption options for k-12. I am an advocate for the role that open educational resources can and should play in improving education while reducing costs in both k-12 and higher education.
