Candidate for Superintendent

Terry Gilbert


If we have not met yet, allow me to introduce myself. I am a life-long educator – a teacher, a mentor and a public education advocate. I was the first in my family to go to college, and worked various jobs to support myself, from paper boy in our communities to choke setter in the woods. After graduation, I began my career in rural Idaho schools, and for 45 years I have been immersed in education at all levels. I am still in touch with many of my former students.

Public schools are the heartbeat of Idaho’s communities, and strong communities start with strong schools. I am running for State Superintendent of Public Instruction to give a voice to Idaho parents, teachers, students, and everyone who is tired of the Idaho Legislature year after year shirking its Constitutional mandate to adequately fund our public schools, even after the courts ordered them to.
