Philosophy on Education:

“All children, regardless of their race, economic status and background deserve access to a quality education. I believe in the power of public education. Educators who are dedicated to this cause deserve to be properly compensated and acknowledged for teaching, guiding, mentoring, and encouraging their students for a life-long love of learning. The decisions made by the Board affect all and impact all. I believe in open and honest expression of views by all members of our school community, in an environment of mutual respect. I also feel that a quality public education is the key to a stronger, safer and more stable community.”

Philosophy on Education:

“Free appropriate education.” Sound familiar? I hope so. The words free and appropriate are a promise. A promise rooted in the Fourteenth Amendment and guaranteed in the Rehabilitation Act of 1973. All this promise asks is to attend. I believe that this is every child’s constitutional, more importantly, human right. I believe in public education.

I am a fiscal realist. This belief is honed from more than 30 years of public school experience. As a 20-year public school administrator, I have served as both member and leader of teams that made tough implementation decisions. I would now like to work cooperatively to make tough policy decisions.

Philosophy on Education:
"Education is the foundation of democracy. I believe we should focus on delivering a quality public education to all students in our district. That starts, first and foremost, with a safe and stable learning environment. Teachers need to be equipped with a quality curriculum and be treated like professionals to implement that curriculum. We need to empower students, promote positive self-image in order to create lifelong learners and productive citizens. Students need to be provided educational opportunities in a variety of ways to meet the needs of all learners. It is important to have students voice their opinions and engage them to become active participants in their education. As a board it is our responsibility to listen and unite parents, teachers, students and all community stakeholders. It is our job to collaborate and support our community and district leadership. Together, we can create a district culture that cultivates academic, social and emotional growth."

Philosophy on Education:

"
Children are a society’s greatest and most valuable investment. Educating children to be critical thinkers and compassionate for others is paramount to our future as a local community, a nation, and on a global scale. We as a community are responsible for this vital upbringing of our young. We must work together to provide our community’s children with a safe place to learn and live so they can thrive and grow to their fullest potential of responsible and ethical citizens. Literacy, coupled with moral concepts is the recipe for the upright citizens we ought to be ourselves, and desire for our children. This responsibility is accomplished through the hard work of parents, the school, and all other community members working together for the sake of our children. This diligence does not discriminate, and it ensures everyone is appreciated and holds the same vision, which is our children’s future."

Philosophy on Education: 
"Education (primarily K-8) is the foundation for nearly everything in life. As students progress through the Liberty Elementary School District, they begin to learn new and exciting things that will lead to mastering skills that will last them a lifetime.  As we look out in the world and identify heroes such as doctors, scientists, firefighters, police officers, military personnel, and many others, educators are often overlooked.  It is those educators who put forth a tremendous amount of effort to ensure we have prepared today’s students to be tomorrow's leaders.  Educators are truly heroes. As a Governing Board member, I believe we must never lose sight of the task and responsibility we are entrusted by the taxpayer.  We must ensure that we establish policies that ensure the very best educational opportunities and atmosphere for our students and staff.  I believe that schools should be community anchor points.  We must always look for new and effective ways of providing the best education in our community. The best investment you will ever make is in the education of a child.  I look forward to following the students of the Liberty Elementary School District throughout their lives as they conquer amazing goals and achievements."
