Goals: I want to see us make strides as a district by offering innovative programs and curriculum. We need to be as creative as we can within the confines of our budget. I want to encourage all of our district staff to offer ideas and suggestions on how to do this. Our teachers and our aides are the ones who are there in the classrooms every day with our students. I would love to get their input on what we need to do to make our schools better. It’s time to think outside of the box. I’m going to do my very best to help all of the students in this district to succeed. I want to work together with all of our board members to help our district shine. It’s not about party politics. It’s about helping our children.
