Questions & Answers

1. What are your qualifications for office?

Being a business owner for the last 10 years has allowed me to constantly improve and grow as a professional woman. I am equipped to deal with difficult issues and solve complex problems. I am committed to the feedback from my community in order to improve our district. I have been in this community for over 20 years, my grandparents resided in Springfield Township and I am a homeowner & business owner in Forest Park. I have 2 young children in the district & my oldest attends Winton Woods Primary South. I am a part of this community and I care.

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

I would investigate the high administrative costs and request the completion of a financial audit to determine the appropriate budget assessment. I would direct funds back into the classroom. Our district must create a balance for a district our size. I would also activate strong community partnerships to give community members a role in the advancement of our students and in our district.

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

I would have open transparent communications to our community stake holders and parents. To not only showcase the district's accomplishments but also areas we are in need of community and parental support. Using the assets of the district to bring the community in - all hands in together so we can all share our time, services, or opinions on how to advance our district and students on the path of progress.

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

I will be a student focused board member who listens and acts upon community and parental feedback. I believe in the advancement and achievement for ALL students because EVERY child has the capability to learn. We must maintain competitive edge by ensuring a wide curriculum that includes general education, honors & AP courses. As well as improving our students with disabilities & ESL programs proactively and advocating for these students with a stronger focus on teacher comprehension and strengthening parental involvement. I will ensure that our schools serve the learning needs of ALL students in our community and challenge students at ALL levels. I will be a proactive board member opposed to reactive because our community and our children deserve the best public education their community has to offer.
