Why I am Running

To ensure that the kids are placed first in all decisions, at all levels in all buildings. To ensure equity of resources throughout the district, to increase transparency at all levels and to advocate for the most important element of education– the teacher-student relationship. Ultimately, this relationship and its strength has the most significant impact on learning. The focus of the school board and district leadership should be on creating the best possible circumstances for student wellbeing and learning by holding the teacher-student interaction sacred.

Top 3 Priorities

1. Student wellbeing and learning are the priority on all decisions.
2. To provide teachers with the resources needed to ensure that student wellbeing and learning are at the highest levels possible.
3. To serve as a representative of the communities of Sheridan County School District #1 to the best of my ability in my decisions.
