Q: What would you like students to know about you?

“The past few years have been challenging, but my commitment to Rockwood never wavered. I stayed the course, and I am ready to dig in, re-energize, and move forward.

It’s about the kids. It’s always been about the kids. I have over 31 years of experience in education, from the classroom to the superintendent’s cabinet. As a Rockwood Board of Education Director, I have actively sought to engage in conversations with students, parents and staff. I believe in Rockwood’s strength and understand the components necessary to do whatever it takes to ensure all students realize their potential.”


Q: What are your goals for the BOE?

“As a Board of Education Director, I will provide leadership for learning through effective governance. My goals are academic excellence in a safe and caring learning environment, retention and recruitment of top talent and stellar strategic planning that engages our students, families and community. Fiscal responsibility is an underlying priority. A school board that functions as a team is essential.”


Q: What policies will you advocate for?

“As a Board of Education Director, I will advocate for and set policy aligned to District goals for improving student outcomes and district operations. Proposals for new or amendments to current policies may be initiated by any Board member, citizen of the district or employee of the district.“


Q: How important are student voices in education?

“Students have the greatest stake in their education. The empowerment of a student’s voice that expresses the student’s thoughts, ideas, opinions and values is crucial to drive positive change within a school building or district. If elected, I will propose a Board of Education Student Advisory to support identification of District priorities, goals and strategies.”


Q: How important are parent voices in education?

“Parents/guardians are the experts of their own children. By enhancing parent voice and working together, parents and schools can learn from each other to ensure schools are functioning at a high level.”


Q: How important are staff (teachers admin) voices in education?

“The voice of our staff expressing their values, opinions, beliefs, perspectives, knowledge and expertise is essential to ensure Rockwood School District meets the needs of all students. Staff voice and leadership are vital for staff to accomplish their best work.”
