How do you think being a Democrat will affect the decisions you make as a school board member? I am a teacher and a parent before my party affiliation. My decisions in matters relating to our schools begin and end with what is the best for our students, teachers and staff, and community.
After 14 years as a special education teacher, teacher mentor, and student advocate, I firmly believe in an educational philosophy that is student-centered, equity-based and extends past politics. Our students will have their best chance at reaching their potential when all parties come together to support our public school system, one in which all students receive an excellent education.
