I would infuse perspective, collaboration and leadership experience, while being an optimistic realist who is naturally empathic, hearing and understanding other perspectives. My parental perspective is unique: 3 of my 4 children have spanned every grade level within the district. Every child is unique, and I’ve navigated how to best advocate for each child. As Secretary of the Tigersharks Swim Club for 4-years, I have gained an understanding of collaboration, decision making from financial reports, and futuristic planning of our organization. As Teaching Director for a non-profit, I led a leadership team of 5 who implemented large and small group programs, leadership development and children’s programs for the 90+ member chapter.
Foremost, keeping primary focus on the goal: educated graduates ready for the workforce or higher education. Every decision and policy should be pointed to elevating education, removing distractions and increasing direct instructional time. Second, I would advocate integrity in curriculum and increasing parental engagement and voice. Parents are the best advocate for their child. Last, I would scrutinize budget to ensure the dollars are being spent on instruction and curriculum first.
According to the MDE 2022 Report Card, 92% of students feel safe both at school and transporting to/from school. In order to create safety for all, we must find what the security concerns are from the 8%. To create or modify policies that effectively increase safety, we must be informed, engaged, and listening to staff on the front lines. All incidents must be reported so the board can best assess policies. Last, we must utilize our School Resource Officers to promote security as needed.

I have 6 children ranging in age of 1-19. I have been through all levels of education from preschool through high school within Farmington district. I have worked with special education and volunteered within the schools in numerous ways. This has allowed me the opportunity to form relationships with teachers and staff. I am passionate about our children's education and safety. I believe in transparency and communication. My full time job as a Project Manager brings in my critical thinking skills and discernment. My goal is to create a positive educational environment for all students to be and feel successful as well as safe.
Academic Achievement would be first. I mean making sure all learners are receiving the special help they need to be able to learn and flourish. Also, bringing up our percentage of students meeting the standard for core subject. Safety is another issue. Creating a safe environment for our for kids who are bullied and assaulted. This can be accomplished in a variety of ways. The third would be budget and finances. There is a 4 million dollar deficit and looking at how that impacts our learners.
The administrative guidelines for disciplinary action need to be evaluated and also heavily communicated to students, families, and staff. It begs the question, are we using these as "guidelines" or actual procedures and are we following through? I believe we need to evaluate the gaps in security like "dead zones" where there is no camera coverage. Bad things happen when nobody is watching. We also need to explore other opportunities to have additional support within the 4 walls of our schools.

The ideal school board should contain members with diversity in educational backgrounds and areas of expertise. Through my 14 years of medical practice, I bring additional knowledge in family and emergency medicine. This insight will be helpful as we continue to navigate and recover from the COVID-19 pandemic. I will help guide the team to aid our learners to regain lost ground not only educationally, but socially and emotionally as well. I add an evidence based medical perspective with a priority for in-person learning. I bring a cooperative attitude, tremendous respect for our teachers, and no set personal agenda. I will prioritize the needs of a diverse group of learners. I look forward to serving the families of district #192.
1. Learner recovery from the pandemic: academically, socially, emotionally: How best to close this new gap.

2. Educator and staff retention, safety, satisfaction: How best to support our most important educational resource, give them the tools they need to be most effective.

3: Fiscal responsibility: How to best distribute our budget to meet the needs of our learners and ensure both financial security and an optimal educational experience for the next generation and our community.
One of the best features of our staff is their willingness to give feedback and their tremendous insight with thoughts on constructive improvements. As a board member, I will continue to gather feedback through all communication channels from our staff, law enforcement, emergency response teams and state education boards to ensure optimal school safety. I am thankful for the increased security measures at our schools in the past few years. I hope to continue to address reduction of bullying
