It has been an honor serving this community and ensuring the continued success of our students. I appreciate your vote for my second term.


During my tenure, we completed the on-time and on-budget construction of the 2014 bond projects including Northwood Elementary, and the Middle and High School expansions. Our board led the successful 2016 Educational, Transportation, Capital Projects and Technology Levies. As a founder of the Superintendent's Diversity Advisory Council, we created Fundamental 7 focused on diversity and equity to ensure students of all races, abilities, and needs have the educational supports to succeed. Finally, as Board President, I led the effort to find and hire our Superintendent.


I will continue to focus on finance, facilities, and modern academic and mental-health programs for our students.  As a twenty-year resident with two children in the district and one graduated, I am committed to the success of our schools.
