Posted by Texas Education on August 6, 2008

Well, I met Laura Ewing tonight! What a delightful lady. She stands for all the things we need in an SBOE Representative – District 7. Here is Laura Ewing’s bio:

Do you remember that one special teacher who helped you become the person you are today? One teacher who helped to change your life and opened your eyes? For more than 30 years Laura Ewing has been in the classroom and touched the lives of thousands of students. She’s taught our children how to change the world, and now she’s ready to show them how it’s done in her campaign for the Texas State Board of Education. Laura Ewing knows how to put education first since she’s been doing it for her entire career.

After teaching students from Houston, Fort Bend, Clear Creek, Spring and Cypress Fairbanks about American Civics, Laura knows how government is supposed to work. And with a Masters in Education, she also knows the importance of making our students’ education the number one priority for our State Board of Education. As a curriculum specialist in Pearland and an UHCL adjunct professor, Laura also helped teachers find their way around the classroom and has helped shape the way our classrooms operate.

Having helped so many students along the way, Laura has been honored with a long list of awards including “Teacher of the Year,” “Supervisor of the Year,” and the “Award for Excellence in the Teaching of Private Enterprise.” Laura’s many years of service and expertise have been recognized all over the country and all over the world. From Washington D.C. and Los Angeles to India, London and East Africa. Laura has been instrumental in bringing our schools to the forefront in every community she visits.

Laura has also been a dedicated public servant having been elected and re-elected to the Friendswood City Council. She and her husband John are members of Friendswood United Methodist Church where she organizes the yearly Christmans and Thanksgiving food and gift drives, and also teaches Sunday school.

Laura has already committed her life to the classroom since she earned her B.S. in Education from the University of Texas in 1975 and a Master’s degree in Administration at University of Houston in 1997. Her support of public education extends to enrolling her own son in public schools. It’s time to put education first and elect Laura Ewing to the State Board of Education in November.

Vote for Laura Ewing!!
