I believe Rochester Public Schools are an essential part of our community infrastructure. As a community volunteer and education advocate, I have a record of commitment to improving our Rochester Public Schools. Now as a School Board member, I am committed to using my voice and vote on the Rochester School Board act on those improvements.

The challenges faced by today's students and schools are mounting

and the considerations needed to plan for the schools of tomorrow

are complex. As a school board member, I am responding to these challenges with a focus on:

  • Better ways to share information with the community and get your input and feedback

  • Evaluation strategies to identify what we are doing well and how we can improve

  • A stronger focus on addressing students as individuals through our programs and curriculum

  • Consideration of financial impacts when setting priorities and allocating resources.

  • Goals that include a timeline for milestones and results.

Thanks for stopping by my website. Please use the tabs at the top of the page to find out more about my experience and background, details about the issues I believe are important and how you can help me do my work on the Rochester School Board.
