My objective to serve on the Board of Education is to provide a high quality education to all of our students. We have done this by placing our students at the forefront of our purpose by maintaining student driven goals. I believe that every student deserve equality and the opportunity to thrive. Another objective is supporting our highly effective administrators and staff to help the students grow as individuals and realize their dreams. This all must be done while maintaining good fiscal practices. I try to keep in mind to be fiscally responsible to our taxpayers while providing a quality education for our students.

I believe that learning should be enjoyable. As a retired teacher from MCS and current Board of Education member, I would like to see the goals we have put in place help guide everyone at MCS to do their very best. Presenting a school budget that is fiscally and educationally sound, providing equitable opportunities for learning to each student, working for the success of every student – focusing on their social and emotional well-being, as well as, high academic standards and working to improve communication with the community are the objectives, that I believe, are necessary to allow MCS students to help reach their personal and professional goals.

To fight to preserve our traditions, to improve our educational program, and to offer every student a path to their dreams. This can only be achieved when the entire board works together towards common goals, and works together with the administration to achieve these goals. I feel that this dynamic is in place, and the result is our highly effective community directed school. Our community generously funds our school district, and our district gives results.
