Issues you think are most important:
The current Board of Education and administration are on
the cutting edge of new policies and strategies. I want our school system to remain strong and
a leader in the education world, so the children of our community will have the
necessary skills they need to be successful adults. I want to support the work they have already
done and take our schools to the next level.
What you would like voters to know about you and your vision for the board:
I participated Strategic Planning Committee this past year
and assisted in the vision planning of how the community would like to see the
schools evolve to remain a competitive asset. Having children just entering into the school system, I have a personal
desire to make sure all of our children are receiving the best possible
education. I have no political agendas
in wanting to serve the public. I
honestly just want the best for our community.
