Education: Bachelor of Arts in Chemistry, Indiana University
Occupation: Senior Representative, Bio-Medical Technology

Statement:

Education First

 

My children receive a terrific education in Northshore schools due to the quality and commitment of our teachers, administrators, and school staff.  While we build on our successes, we face significant challenges such as school funding, class size, and standardized testing.  Thoughtful leadership is more important than ever.

 

I’ve contributed to our community as a volunteer science docent, PTA legislative representative, classroom helper, chaperone, and Northshore Lacrosse board member.  My wife has taught special education in our district for over 20 years.

 

I developed the expertise and judgment to responsibly allocate your tax dollars by managing a multi-million dollar region for 16 years.

 

My priorities are to advance open communication between the parents, school board, administration, and teachers, and to seek a “smarter balance” between education and standardized testing.

 

Endorsements:  NSEA/NESPA, (Northshore Teachers, Para-Educators, and School Nurses Organizations), Senator Rosemary McAullife, and Representative Derek Stanford

Isaac Parsons


Education: B.A. English Literature, Western Washington University
Occupation: Real Estate Broker

Statement:
I am running for school board because I have a passion to better the lives of children and the community as a whole.  As a father of a toddler and kindergartner, I want to ensure that they, along with every other child, have the best education possible.  
 
In my occupation, I help facilitate intense negotiations and am able to balance the needs and goals of multiple parties to bring mutually beneficial resolutions.   I have also served in leadership with Kiwanis and am on my church’s elder board.  In both of these positions, I help make decisions to maximize community benefit with limited budgets.
 
I believe that not only does the community benefit from great education, but education benefits from great communities.  One of my goals will be to involve the community more in the education system to lift-up and support their local schools.

Statement:

I am a fifty-year resident of the Northshore community, Northshore schools graduate, mother of three Northshore graduates, grandmother of two current Northshore students, and a local small business owner.  

 

I have been involved within Northshore schools as a Paraeducator, classroom volunteer, Leader of PTAs at the school and Council levels, and served as the Washington State PTA liaison to the Washington State School Safety Advisory Committee.

 

Our schools face many exciting and diverse challenges.  In addition to my years of service, insight, and leadership, I will bring to the School Board a clear focus on the needs of our students, honest and open communication with our community, and a desire to build positive relations with fellow board members, staff, and our community. 

 

It has been my privilege to serve our community and children, and would love the opportunity to continue to serve as a member of the Northshore School Board.
