MCPS teacher Maxwell Bero (Clarksburg) has announced his run to seek the nomination for Democratic candidate in Maryland’s 6th Congressional District, challenging incumbent congressman David Trone.
Bero is currently a social studies teacher at Watkins Mill High School in Montgomery Village. “Our current Congress, and our current congressman, is not doing enough to address the problems facing this country,” Bero said. “Issues such as global climate change, the technological revolution, our overburdened education system, and health care, among others, are not being addressed by our current leaders in Washington. I’m tired of sitting on the sidelines hoping for our representatives to step up and do what is necessary. It’s time for a new generation of leadership, who is willing to fight for what’s best for ALL Americans, present, and future.”
Bero has been a public school teacher in Montgomery County Public Schools for the past eight years, working in Silver Spring prior to Watkins Mill HS. He has a bachelor’s degree in political science and secondary education from the University of Maryland, and a master’s degree in curriculum and instruction from McDaniel College.
