The current educational atmosphere demands equal accountability and standards for all schools, public, charter, and private. We need to shift the focus from standardized test results and measure the growth of students socially, emotionally, and academically in their classrooms.
The need for higher levels of education has never been greater. For many, college has become an extension of our K-12 school system. Securing debt-free college for our students and families is essential. Their future and our future depends on it.
The backbone of every nation is a healthy population. Without a physically, mentally, and emotionally healthy country, we cannot expect to compete globally. Healthcare is a right and it is our responsibility to guarantee affordable insurance coverage for every American.
Born and raised in Cumberland County, New Jersey, Sean not only has remained, but has continued to grow with his community. He now resides in the same county with his wife and their two young sons. Sean currently serves as an administrator at Camden’s Promise Charter School, where he focuses on the professional development of teachers and building various social-emotional skills with students. Graduating from Rutgers University with an undergraduate degree in Communication as well as a graduate degree from the University of Scranton in Educational Administration helped open the doors to what has now become nearly a decade long career in education.
As a result of connecting with people everyday of all ages, ethnicities, cultures and beliefs, Sean has learned how to listen and meet the individualized needs of different groups of people. In order to help organize parents and educators to come together in academic spaces, it has required him to search for innovative, functional, and inclusive ways to solve problems.
As the next United States Senator from the state of New Jersey, Sean promises to apply the most effective policies to positively influence the collective growth of all New Jerseyans and Americans. He intends to only put the best interests of his constituents, state, and country first, regardless of how unpopular that may make him within the political machine. This is how we give politics, power, and our country back to the people. This is how we place our future first.
