Philosophy on Education:

“All children, regardless of their race, economic status and background deserve access to a quality education. I believe in the power of public education. Educators who are dedicated to this cause deserve to be properly compensated and acknowledged for teaching, guiding, mentoring, and encouraging their students for a life-long love of learning. The decisions made by the Board affect all and impact all. I believe in open and honest expression of views by all members of our school community, in an environment of mutual respect. I also feel that a quality public education is the key to a stronger, safer and more stable community.”

Philosophy on Education:

"I believe in teaching children not just subjects. Teachers should enjoy the curriculum they teach so the students can enjoy the classroom and the curriculum. To give each child a chance on achieving the best they can do with the curriculum they are being taught. To give each child a chance to broaden their minds with their own imagination and to be open to their ideas. The community and the family of the students should support and supply the teachers with the tools they need to give the students a great experience. As a community, we are all responsible for taking care of our students, to see them grow, and have a great future. This will make our community and our country a better place in the future."

Philosophy on Education:
"Education is the foundation of democracy. I believe we should focus on delivering a quality public education to all students in our district. That starts, first and foremost, with a safe and stable learning environment. Teachers need to be equipped with a quality curriculum and be treated like professionals to implement that curriculum. We need to empower students, promote positive self-image in order to create lifelong learners and productive citizens. Students need to be provided educational opportunities in a variety of ways to meet the needs of all learners. It is important to have students voice their opinions and engage them to become active participants in their education. As a board it is our responsibility to listen and unite parents, teachers, students and all community stakeholders. It is our job to collaborate and support our community and district leadership. Together, we can create a district culture that cultivates academic, social and emotional growth."

Philosophy on Education: 

"Education is the single most powerful tool anyone can ever possess. I feel that each and every child should be considered as a unique individual. We have to adapt our teaching methods and classroom make up to accommodate the uniqueness of each child. We must engage the entire community to educate the next generation of adults. Our children will face new challenges in the ever advancing tech world and it will require a 'village' to educate them. I believe the students, teachers and administrators are the laser focus we must support. The School Board have to hire the right administrator, set the right goals and fund the right programs."

Philosophy on Education:

"
Children are a society’s greatest and most valuable investment. Educating children to be critical thinkers, and compassionate for others is paramount to our future as a local community, a nation, and on a global scale. We as a community are responsible for this vital upbringing of our young. We must work together to provide our community’s children with a safe place to learn and live so they can thrive and grow to their fullest potential of responsible and ethical citizens. Literacy, coupled with moral concepts is the recipe for the upright citizens we ought to be ourselves, and desire for our children. This responsibility is accomplished through the hard work of parents, the school, and all other community members working together for the sake of our children. This diligence does not discriminate, and it ensures everyone is appreciated and holds the same vision, which is our children’s future."
