I am running for School Board because educating our youth directly impacts their future and the future of our community, county, and nation. To provide every child with the education they deserve, Board members must have a vision, create structures to support that vision, and be accountable to the public.
As a 33 year Loudoun County resident, 25-year LCPS teacher, and mother of 3 LCPS graduates, I have spent my entire career touching the lives and hearts of Loudoun children. I will bring transparency and accountability to the board through a lens of an experienced educator.
Transparency and accountability begin with understanding the issues. My slogan is, “A Voice for All,” because I plan to implement a method of communication where transparency and data become part of the Board’s decision-making process. How can our school board make the best decisions for our children without allowing for employee and community input and data to drive their decision making? When elected, I will create an innovative framework where the board actively solicits the input of all stakeholders through a simplified communication system.
A Voice for All – Implement a simplified communication system allowing for everyone’s voice to become part of the board’s decision-making process.
Technology – Ensuring that teachers and students have technology and tools that work and meet their instructional needs. Provide teachers, students and parents with adequate and appropriate technology training.
Equity and Diversity – Take action by hiring diverse employees, require diversity training, implement a culturally-responsive curriculum to celebrate differences, and provide opportunities where all learners have access to programs.
Budget Evaluation – Budget analysis to ensure programs have a positive impact and are data driven; unnecessary spending must be cut.
