PERSONAL STATEMENT: In the three years that I’ve been on the Board of Education much has been accomplished, but keeping in mind the concept of “continuous improvement” the job will never be done. It is my hope that in the next few years by hiring intelligent, creative, energetic teachers, providing proper professional development and additional improvements to our facilities, we will better enable our students to be successful once they leave our district, whether they continue their education or enter the work world. A responsible board can accomplish these goals and by being resourceful this can be accomplished in a fiscally responsible way.
