Mom. Leader. Public Servant. Advocate.
I am running to retain my seat on the Columbus Board of Education to ensure all children in Columbus receive an education to prepare them for tomorrow. This means our buildings support academic growth, adults are well-qualified and passionate about educating and engaging our children, financial decisions are made with transparency, and policy and practices create inclusive opportunity to teach, nurture, and understand the whole child, family, and community.
As the Mom of a CCS 4th grader, I see and feel the need for this transformation first hand. An inclusive, strategic, and holistic approach must be taken to innovate our schools and strengthen our communities. Our District must work with our governmental, business, non-profit, and educational partners to effectuate this necessary transformation. We must celebrate our successes, of which there are many, and fight to change a system that works against our public schools and children. We must come together and stop "playing politics" with our children, as they deserve so much better from their grown-ups.
Through my many years of community and civic leadership, professional and advocacy skills, diversity & inclusion work, and strategic approach to transformation, I am ready to serve our children, our community, and our schools. I hope you will stand with me to make this transformation by engaging in and supporting my campaign.
