What factors most strongly influenced your decision to run for the School Board?
The talent and growth potential of the young people in the district was a very strong influence. Another key influence was the level of support given by the parents and community for public education. A third factor was the commitment and quality of the district staff (teachers, administrators, superintendent, and support staff). Lastly, the existing challenges facing public education that present a great opportunity to drive creative solutions for student achievement and staff development.

Is there valuable insight and some information you feel a prospective school board candidate should know BEFORE they seek election?
 ♦ You will need to spend a lot of time learning about your responsibilities as a trustee by doing research on the topics you will be required to make decisions on, preparing for meetings by reading any documentation provided by staff, and attending meetings (regular and special board meetings, special committee assignments, district events, campus events, regional and state activities…).
 ♦ You will have to be open to understanding all aspects of how a school district operates and how the laws at the federal and state level affect your options.

What have you learned about being an elected public official that has helped you successfully perform your duties for the children and citizens for the district?
It is very important to regularly review the reasons why I ran initially and afterwards, understand the current educational environment within and external to the local community and assess how well I am working toward those changing objectives.
