Personal statement
“I believe in a public education system that empowers, encourages and supports our students each year from Preschool to 12 to achieve to the highest levels they are capable through a culture of high expectations and an infrastructure of effective and diverse support. I have worked for this as a parent of three students in the district, and I believe my experiences, both within the school system and through my professional career, can bring value to the district as a whole as well.”
