I am asking for your vote to help me continue to work to guide and improve our district. My mission is to ensure each child has the best education possible to reach their goals and dreams. My goal is to remove barriers, whatever they may be, that stand in the way of our students’ success.
My decisions have always been based on what’s best for students. I value community, high standards for our staff and students, equitable treatment for our students, and fiscal responsibility. I support family choice about their children’s education, and local decisions about curriculum. I will continue to work to ensure local control of schools, effective results, and accountability of your tax dollars! I will continue to fight against state and federal mandates that take away your voice in our schools! I will respectfully work with you and listen to you in providing the best education possible for our students.
Our district led the way in safely re-opening our schools after the state shutdown. Let’s continue to work to improve our schools, and do what’s best for each and every one of our students.
Thank you for your consideration.
