“As an educator with over 30 years of experience, I believe that every student can learn and my motto is, ‘When a learner is ready, a teacher will appear.’ I am dedicated to supporting initiatives which create an atmosphere that empowers students to pursue life-long educational and career goals while developing professionally. It is my belief that everyone deserves an opportunity to learn and earn a respectable salary, and I place high value on developing relationships that build a culture of high expectations and excellence. Emphasis on student development, training, and college readiness starts in elementary school. Developing partnerships with school administrators, educators, community members, students, parents, and area employers is critical to building pipelines of enriched educational experiences for the students in the Winton Woods City School District. It is an honor and a privilege to work with the other members of the school board on behalf of all of the stakeholders of this great school district.”
