Trish has always loved the art of teaching. Seeing the glimmer in every one of her student’s eyes when they learn something is so gratifying. You know when you see that glimmer that you have done your job and done it well. But, over the years of teaching, she realized our state government was not supporting her, her peers, or our students very well. So, in 2018, she walked out to demand a change in how our state funds educators and public education. What she saw when I went to the Capital surprised and bothered me. The experience showed her there needed to be a change, and she wanted to be that change. So, Trish ran to represent not only House District 34 but the educators and students of our great state. She has represented the great people of District 34 for two terms and is excited to continue making a change for a better Oklahoma.
