Questions & Answers

1. How would you contribute toward the development of unity among the members of the new board and members of the school community to achieve harmonious merger of the new district?

I would offer my life experiences knowledge of management, affability, appreciation for diversity, profound respect for responsible participation,and ability to work out any differences that might arise. I have been noted for successfully interfacing with the community to address and resolve a myriad of situations. As a member of the governing board , I would dedicate the time and effort that a school district comprising 5,000 students requires to meet and exceed expectations.

2. What is your vision for the newly merged district?

I see a district with the ability to develop essential infrastucture and implement an outstanding curriculum. I envision a district aware of differences, sensitive to values, committed to fairness, and open to ideas that improve results. I strive for a community with the determination and resources to satisfy the needs of our children.

3. What issues or events have shaped your decision to seek trusteeship on the school board?

My motivation stems from the resolution to give our children a better world and the realization that our children need a good education for this to become a reality.
