“If I am elected to the school board one of my focuses will be keeping our kids and school safe. It is a high priority for me that we perform as a cohesive unit including board members, district personnel, staff, teachers and community members. It is essential that we effectively communicate across all areas, establishing and maintaining trust and common goals. One goal must be to provide a quality education to all children of our community. It is the job of the district to provide the teachers in this community with the necessary tools and training to adequately educate our children. We must also ensure that methods of accountability are in place, such that each member of our team understands his or her responsibility and that parents, children, teachers, administrators, staff and school board members can fulfill these responsibilities effectively. I will come to this job with an open mind and the objectivity necessary to perform all of the functions of a school board member. I am willing, eager in fact, to devote the time and energy that this community deserves in fulfilling my duties as a member of this board.”
