If elected to the Washington County Board of Education, Teresa Spruill said she would:
· Work to retain teachers by giving them more control of their classrooms and more respect from school administration.
· Pressure the Washington County government to control the amount of growth, limiting how many houses and apartments can be built each year.
· Get more citizens active in the schools by encouraging volunteerism both from corporations and individuals. The more often people are in the schools the more they will support the push for funding for capital improvements, she said.
· Have teachers spend more time focusing on what they are teaching children today and less time on guessing what they will need tomorrow.
