Sarah Maestas Barnes Better Schools NM th

Sarah is a graduate of New Mexico’s public school system and became the first in her family to earn a college degree.  She has seen firsthand the struggles many New Mexican children face today.  As a product of public education and now as a mother of two young children, it is a top priority for Sarah to improve our public school system.  As your State Representative, Sarah has fought for better schools by providing teachers with more resources in the classroom and by supporting policies to ensure our children can read. She wants to make sure that every child is adequately prepared to enter college or the work force when they graduate from high school.  Sarah has also been a strong supporter and advocate for early childhood education and as a legislator she has been a champion for increased funding for early childhood initiatives.
