Experience Matters.

22 consecutive years as a parent and PTA leader in LWSD, (and a background in education), give me the experience needed to be an effective member of our school board. In addition, two of my four children have special needs. Kids are unique and have different learning styles. The district needs to partner with parents so each student obtains their personal, best path forward, building upon their strengths and up from their challenges.


Our students need more opportunities (and equal access to) vocational education, inclusion of special education students, social-emotional learning, STEM programs and assistance with college preparation. We have award winning educators. Teaching children and raising children are demanding responsibilities. When schools collaborate with families, student outcomes improve.


The class of 2019 now needs 24 credits to graduate. I will strengthen the home to school partnership using my background in education and decades of experience as a PTA leader and volunteer.


I have been honored to receive four PTA Golden Acorn Awards. I am just as honored to have the endorsement of a wide variety of public servants, including retiring LWSD board member, Nancy Bernard, and former board member, Jackie Pendergrass.


Please vote Sage for Schools.

I want to serve on the School Board because public education is my calling and my passion. I have thirteen years of experience working with students from middle up to graduate school in three states, in both urban and suburban districts. I believe all students should graduate prepared for whatever path they choose to pursue next: further education, technical training, or entering the workforce. To achieve this, we must continue investing in STEM education and, among other things, make a stronger commitment to world languages. Research shows that learning a second language results in improved cognitive function, higher academic achievement, and higher salaries. For this reason, I would work to create an early world language education program to provide our students with the skills they need to succeed in our diverse communities, local and nationwide. To graduate well-rounded, empowered students who are ready to compete in a shrinking world, we must provide them with an education that balances the humanities with STEM. My experience as a professional, a student, and a parent would add a fresh perspective that would lead to practical improvements for our students. I would be honored to receive your vote.
