Education Consultant / Public Speaker
“A Dream that is Bigger than Me!”
Introduced by: Rourke O'Brien
Join us to hear Erin Jones speak about her vision of education and what it can do for the children of the State of Washington.
She will share a message she shares with students every day – “in order to contribute effectively to making this nation the best it can be, we must recognize 3 truths: 1. It doesn’t matter where you start, it matters where you finish; 2. Every choice you make matters, so choose wisely, 3. Greatness is not about being rich and famous or having stuff; it’s about investing one’s talents in the community. “
Our dreams must be about more than making a name for ourselves or collecting “stuff,” but about making “our world” better.
With 25 years in teaching and education, she has a dream that would be wonderful to achieve! That is why she ran for the State Superintendent of Schools last November, the first African American woman to run for Executive office in Washington, and lost by only 1% of the vote.
