  • As a mother to four children and a former employee of the Fairfax County Public Schools and Fairfax County Head Start, Elizabeth believes every child has the right to a quality education no matter what their zip code.

  • Our schools are only as strong as our teachers, and Elizabeth believes if you take care of your teachers, your teachers will take care of your students. She stands in strong support of teachers’ unions and in 2020, she was named “Legislator of the Year” by the Virginia Education Association.

  • Elizabeth is Vice-Chair of the Education Committee and was proud to support the General Assembly’s historic investments in public education, including the largest single-year pay raise for teachers in 15 years. However, Elizabeth recognizes that pay for Virginia teachers still lags behind teachers in states like Maryland and Pennsylvania. She will continue to advocate for higher teacher pay so that we can attract and retain the best talent for our students.

  • In her first year as a legislator, Elizabeth introduced measures to reduce the caseload of school counselors and special education aides and to help fund universal pre-K.

  • Inspired by her child, who has a learning disability, Elizabeth sponsored a resolution to study the barriers to collecting information about disabilities that do not qualify for an Individualized Education Program.
