The older I get, the more aware I become of our nation’s shortcomings in public education, and I am grateful for the opportunity to make a contribution to this critical institution. I am very fortunate that my position on the board brings me in continual contact with young people and with an amazing collection of professionals who supply the talent and dedication that make our district a leader in education.

I believe that a great education is one where both the heart and the mind are nourished and cultivated. To do that, we should acknowledge that each child has a gift and his/her educational need is unique. To best individualize the effort to educate, we must engage our teachers, principals, parents, students and all members of our community. My hope is to be part of an education where curiosity and creativity are fostered, effective communication and collaboration are encouraged, critical thinking is developed, and citizenship nurtured.
