|I'm Abby Whitmire, and I'm running for Humble ISD Board of Trustees, Position 4. I am thankful to be a product of Texas public schools - first as a student in New Braunfels ISD for K-12, and then as a proud Longhorn at The University of Texas at Austin, where I earned my B.A. in Government in 2006.|
I was blessed with amazing teachers who were committed and creative, and who cared so deeply about me and my classmates. I
believe all children in Texas deserve a great, well-resourced school with respected and empowered teachers, regardless of where they live or how much money their family makes.
Living in New Orleans opened my eyes to the strengths and weaknesses of the modern school reform movement and the realities of charter schools, vouchers, and school choice.
My family moved to Kingwood in 2014 for the schools. We want our son, William (age 3), to have the best possible start in life and to be engaged in the joy of learning. I'm so excited to send him to Bear Branch Elementary for Kindergarten - but I'm sure I will be an emotional wreck when that day comes!
