Questions & Answers

1. What are your qualifications for office?

I am a mother of two in the district, so I have a significant stake in the success of our schools. I also have strong ties to public education in the Tri-State: my mother is a math teacher, my uncle a high school principal, my aunt a special education teacher.

2. What can be done to improve your school district's results at current funding levels?

We need to remove barriers to learning at all levels + throwing more money at a problem doesn't always solve it. We need to address safety issues and take our students' home lives into account if we want to improve results.

3. What will you do to build consensus in the community in support of your school district?

We need to better celebrate our successes and integrate the school district with the greater North College Hill community. We should work towards improving our image and positioning ourselves as the leading school district in Hamilton County.

4. What would you do to advance the concept of "equity in education" in your district?

The right to an equal educational opportunity is one of the most valuable rights we have as US citizens. This equality should ignore race and family income level, but it's clear by looking at Ohio school district report card data that more affluent districts in Hamilton County are outperforming our own. We need to do everything we can to address this disparity and give our students an equal playing field academically.
