Teaching young people and finding the key to their success is my passion.

Dr. Ghiora has worked K-12 levels in traditional and charter schools. She is immediate Past President of Washington Phi Delta Kappa, the nation’s premier educational organization.

Wendy strongly believes in the potential of each and every student to achieve academic and personal success. She is your Back to the Basics candidate. It’s time to re-ignite the methods used, and once again make our Issaquah schools a paragon of excellence.  Students should leave school with the tools necessary to excel in whatever they choose to do.

Excellence should abound in academics and the creative and performing arts.  An excellent education is when we teach children how to think, not what to think.  A student who is curious and explores many ideas and viewpoints is using critical thinking skills and will be well prepared and inspire others to think for themselves. Dr. Ghiora fully supports the National School Board’s vision and purpose to: “Prepare students for college and the workforce, including preparing them for jobs that may not even exist yet due to rapidly changing technology, and to help children fulfill their diverse potentials.”

I believe that public education plays an important role in developing our young people to become thriving members of society. My commitment to public service is grounded in the principles that transparency and increased engagement with families and community members are critical. We need more voices represented in district decisions.

As a parent of two current ISD students, I ran for the Issaquah School Board in 2019 to serve our community by using my more than 15 years of mission driven board service, skills in finance and operations, and a career of leading transformational change. The past two years have brought incredible challenges and given me the opportunity 
to understand each aspect of our school system. Throughout this unprecedented pandemic, my commitment to listening to differing perspectives and making difficult decisions has been strengthened. My goal is to leverage these experiences to ensure that we retain and reuse all that we have learned and emerge stronger as we return to a fully operational system.

We must all pull together to recover from this distressing time. I pledge to continue doing the hard work needed to support our children’s academic success and social emotional growth. I humbly ask for your support.
