Meet Dr. Reagan Flowers

Dr. Reagan Flowers has been at the forefront of all matters related to STEM education, leadership, entrepreneurship, community advocacy, and professional motivation throughout her career. Her monumental path tells a marvelous story of determination and a will to fight for the un-empowered. Her incredible talents were demonstrated at a young age, as she overcame failing third grade, and through the encouragement of her teachers was able to complete high school early, and went on to become the first person in her family to graduate from college (Texas Southern University). Her passion for STEM education was born while working as a science teacher at Jack Yates High School.

Thanks to a grant provided by NASA, her students were able to build a one-of-a-kind robot, to compete in the school’s first-ever robotics competition. The success of her students and her recognition of the importance of mathematics and science motivated her to create more positive changes at the local level, and she made it her mission to ensure that each child had access to enriched STEM education programming. She has the unwavering support of her loving husband and finds delight in watching others enjoy a meal she has prepared, listening to great music, and traveling the world.

Her STEM exploits evolved into helping support organizations, businesses, teachers, and other professionals in impacting change through the power of education. She has motivated thousands through her inspirational speaking engagements, her business ventures, and community advocacy. Today, she works diligently as CEO of C-STEM, whose headquarters is proudly located in historic Third Ward, TX, and continues to make certain that underrepresented students get the opportunities necessary to have better professional and personal outcomes. Every chapter of her journey has prepared her for this role as HISD Trustee, one which your support will be critical in helping her achieve. She is committed to helping move HISD forward, for our children and our community, and she recognizes that Change Begins With Us.

Change Begins with Us: Our Platform

Our nation's youth have so much to offer, and we need to ensure that our communities and public schools are best meeting their needs. We need to move our communities and public schools Forward together. Dr. Flowers’ plan is comprised of various factors that collectively contribute towards the success that a child accomplishes in the classroom. All factors must be fulfilled to help strengthen public schools and ensure a positive transition from the community to classroom to college and career. If everyday individuals, community leaders, organizations, and businesses work in unison, we can close the gaps in education that have been affecting the most underserved members' communities in Houston for decades.

Take a look below to see what Dr. Flowers believes will help lead to a powerful transformation in our communities and public education.

Having a world-class education system begins with a commitment to fully funding education, offering competitive pay to teachers, restoring prominence to the teaching profession, and allowing teachers to run their classrooms. We must guide public education from the focus on testing to a system more focused on instruction delivery, with built-in flexibility within the curriculum to allow for different approaches to teaching pedagogy. Furthermore, the legislature should not insert itself when school districts make policy decisions aimed at protecting students, staff and teachers.

House District 147 (HD 147) comprises some great public schools, and a collection of incredible higher education institutions including Houston Community College, Texas Southern University, University of Houston, and University of St. Thomas.

The legislature should take affirmative action to expand Medicaid access to Texas’ low to moderate income families. As one of the states with the lowest percentage of insured citizens, improving healthcare access must be a top priority, particularly given the havoc wreaked on our hospital systems by the COVID-19 pandemic. In addition to improving healthcare access, we must place renewed emphasis on preventative healthcare, wellness, nutrition, and combating healthcare disparities.

Small businesses are the lifeblood of so many of our communities, and by far are the largest employer base in Texas. Consequently we must ensure that necessary resources are made available to small and minority businesses to ensure access to non-traditional capital resources, a robust base of consistent customers, and external contract opportunities. Furthermore, the Texas Workforce Commission and Governor’s office of economic development must direct job training programs and economic investments to so many of our underserved communities, to provide upskill training for workers and sustain new investments that will drive local job creation. We must also look to further leverage partnerships with community colleges, high schools, and trades unions to ensure Texans are being equipped with the necessary skills required to compete in the technologically driven future economy.

Housing is the cornerstone of communities, however, to have truly vibrant communities, residents need to have a range of housing that is affordable for people at various levels along the income scale. For communities to be sustainable, housing must be accompanied by a range of basic amenities including but not limited to parks, schools, grocery stores, restaurants, retail, health facilities, and financial institutions. Communities must also combat the most common plights plaguing under-resourced communities such as crime, dilapidated buildings, abandoned lots, and food deserts.  We will promote improved vibrancy of communities throughout HD 147 by working with Community-Based Organizations, City of Houston, Management Districts, TIRZ’s, Non-Profits, Universities, and other key stakeholders to undertake comprehensive community development efforts.

The key to leveling the societal playing field is via broad-based adoption of policies aimed at addressing the issue of equity, which must be viewed through the lens of existing policies that have created historical disadvantages for Black, Hispanic, Asian, and LGBTQIA communities. Equality aims to treat everyone the same, but equity seeks to redress disadvantages and prop up historically marginalized people to a level placing them on a more equal basis to compete for opportunity.
