My Top 3 Priorities

  • Community Engagement: I want to nurture existing relationships and build new ones. Additionally, keeping the public informed about opportunities for collaboration, challenges and our successes is important. Working together we can advance our goals.
  • Innovative Learning: Teachers must continually innovate to keep school relevant and students engaged. When students are engaged they find their greatest success. We must provide the necessary training/resources, to support innovation in the classroom
  • Enhanced Communication: Parents need more effective and timely communications that are easy to understand. I want to connect with parents and understand their family's needs so I can advocate for them and involve them.
