My Visit to Silverbrook Elementary

Last week I had the pleasure of visiting Silverbrook Elementary School to talk to the fourth graders about government and my job in the House of Delegates.

I was so impressed by how much the kids knew about their state government and how it affects them! I had the kids split into groups for a mock-general assembly session and they argued, and eventually passed, an actual bill that I had sponsored years ago. The bill states that it is illegal to manufacture goods with dog or cat fur. The fourth graders had wonderful comments and questions about what happens in session and why I wanted to be a Delegate. I had a great time talking with them!

Back in 1974, when I was in 6th grade at Rolling Valley Elementary, my own delegate visited my class and it’s important to me that I do the same! I hope that I can help these kids learn and gain an interest in government like my delegate did for me years ago.
