ABOUT SHEILA BRIGGS
Here is some background on Sheila Briggs, as provided by her campaign:
I grew up in a small rural town. My father was a manufacturer and my mother was a bank teller. They instilled in me at a young age the importance of hard work. When I left home to go to the UW Madison, that was the BIG city for me. I was a first generation college student and I have devoted my entire adult life to better outcomes for students in our public schools.
I have always felt that public education is the way to improve the human condition, and I have worked hard to make sure school works for all students. But right now, we have unacceptable achievement gaps in our state. We are not meeting the needs of all of our children and we MUST do better. I have spent my career as a teacher, principal, central office administrator and now as Assistant State Superintendent closing gaps and helping educators and students thrive. I want to continue that work as your next State Superintendent of Public Instruction.-Sheila Briggs
