Philosophy of Education: As a mother of three, I have seen firsthand that children mature and developed at their own pace, have unique interests, and respond to different learning styles. I believe in an education system that recognizes individual learning styles, motivates students to learn, and provides a safe learning environment.
The end goal of high school is not only a diploma, but to prepare students to be successful in the next chapter of their life, whether that is college, the military, or the workforce. It is important to prepare students socially, academically and provide them with the skills that enable success beyond high school. Just as important to the development of the whole child is the emphasis on serving the community we live in.
As a member of the Board of Education, I have and will advocate for our students to have a rich curriculum and learning opportunities to prepare them for global opportunities. This includes extra-curricular activities, as they help students develop leadership skills while giving them opportunities to be collaborative and learn how to problem solve.
