"When we walked our daughter to Armstrong Elementary for the first time, I understood the value of a wonderful neighborhood school system where we could all grow and become part of the community," said Streepey. "I had confidence that the teachers would do a great job for our family, and they did. With the pandemic, my hope is that we’ve all found renewed value in teachers and schools. I’m humbled to be a part of the State Board for Educator Certification and to do my part to ensure great teachers for all Texas families."
