HUMMELSTOWN, Pa. (WHTM) – A Lower Dauphin High School teacher is hoping to leave his classroom for the Oval Office.
Geoffrey Kyper announced his candidacy Friday for President of the United States as a write-in candidate.
He is running with no political affiliation, his campaign said.
The campaign released a video Monday afternoon on its Facebook page.
Prior to his teaching career of over 20 years, Kyper worked for nearly a decade as a high-ranking official in the private sector, according to his campaign. He then obtained his teaching certificate and taught inmates at Dauphin County Prison before teaching kids in juvenile hall, and eventually moved into his current job of teaching Advance Placement Government and Ethics at Lower Dauphin High School.
“I’ve worked with all kinds of kids in my career, and the most important message I’ve taught them is that you can rarely get exactly what you want. I hope that I can bring that message to Capitol Hill, where we barely see compromise anymore,” Kyper said in a release.
Kyper’s bid for the White House comes less than a month before Election Day on November 8.
