I am currently a substitute teacher and the mother of 2 Bluffview/Lincoln High School graduates. I have had a direct relationship with the Lake City School system through my children's education, and continue to do so with my substitute teaching. I support and appreciate the Lake City public schools and the fine education they provided. My relationships with teachers, staff, and administrators have always been positive, and inspired me to continue working for the schools. My previous airline experience has taught me valuable skills in diplomacy, empathy, and patience under pressure. It is imperative that a school board member listen to all viewpoints respectfully, and strive to reach a consensus.
The mental health of our children is one of our greatest concerns. Our teachers, social workers, support staff and administration play an essential role in recognizing and responding to these issues-we must give them the tools necessary to cope with these critical challenges. Mental health concerns directly affect school safety, my 2nd priority. Identifying and supporting troubled students is essential to mitigate potential safety issues. Attracting and retaining quality teachers is my 3rd goal
Mental health awareness is a top priority for me, and can directly impact the safety of our schools. Mitigating the potential for safety concerns by providing teachers and staff with the training and tools that they need is imperative. Mental health issues are a risk factor in school shootings--taking preventative measures to identify and support the challenges of troubled students is critical. Additionally, increasing student access to counselors and social workers can reduce the safety risks.

Thank you for the opportunity to introduce myself! A lifelong resident of LC and graduate of ISD 813, I have had the opportunity to benefit in my career from being a recipient of a great education that ISD 813 provided me! I want to continue ensuring this is available to all students in the future. My entire career has been focused around Operational Excellence within world class organizations, specifically: continuous improvement, change management, problem solving, environmental health and safety, budget building and creating a vision/goals through Strategic Planning. Bringing the best out of every person has been a passion of mine and will allow me to be a collaborative team member on the ISD 813 School Board with no political agenda
#1-ensure the educators are given the tools and ability, without worry and influence, to do what they do best - and that is to educate!! We need ensure that they are appreciated and want to continue in the education field & retention is a concern! 2-put more focus on the Trades and give all students a true reflection of career opportunities available to them! 3- additional focus on fine arts. Fine arts drives creativity. Creativity drives innovation. Innovation drives life opportunities.
Having a background in Environmental Health and Safety, and personally developing Risk /Crisis Management Plans - I can say that ISD 813 has been very proactive and thorough with their planning, policies and approach. Now is the time to not remain complacent and to continually test and update current policies based on the risks identified. I will challenge the status quo; monitor both new and old risks and bring forward solutions for improvement. Absolutely no shortcuts will be taken!!
