"I am running for school board because I care deeply about the education of our children, public service and giving back to my community.

During these challenging times, I want to make sure that we are doing all that we can to lift up our students and our schools. I would be honored to have your support!”

the path to success

As a mom of two elementary age girls, I understand firsthand how hard the pandemic has been on our students, families, and school communities. I want to ensure that our students and families have all the resources needed to get on track so our children can become the future leaders we know they can be. I’ll work hard to see that our teachers and school staff have the tools they need for success and safety as our kids transition from online learning to being back in the classroom.

Investing in Our Schools

Even before the onset of the COVID pandemic, our schools faced financial challenges. With funding from the Student Success Act, investing in our schools became a priority. Unfortunately, due to COVID, some of these funds had to be diverted. I will lead the fight to get our schools the financial resources needed to recover from the impacts of the pandemic and to provide the quality education our kids deserve.

Ensuring Our school communities feel heard and supported

As someone who cares deeply about inclusion and equity, I will make it a priority to ensure that all students, no matter their background, are given the support they need to succeed and that all members of our school community – students, families, teachers, and school staff – feel safe, heard and included. It is critical that, across the board, our school district embraces these values.

Environmental Stewardship

To help combat climate change and protect the environment, our school district must do its part by being a leader in sustainability and best environmental practices. And we must teach our students to be good stewards of the environment so they can protect our community and planet in the decades ahead.
