Perspectives on Education

My Promise to the Voters

I ran for the School Board because I felt compelled to do something to help our public schools; speaking out about our problems was not enough. While in office:

  • I plan to draw upon my 36 years of experience as both a teacher and principal at SAIL High School to help make all schools places where every student, parent, and staff member feels valued and respected.
  • I will advocate for policies that value learning more than test scores.
  • I will ensure that every dollar spent supports the needs of our students.
  • I will place high priority on early childhood education and dropout prevention.
  • I will be an engaged school board member and a strong partner in the leadership of the district.
  • I will seek out innovative solutions inside and outside of Tallahassee to solve some of our toughest problems.
  • I will work to forge partnerships with the community to help us close our achievement and opportunity gaps.
  • I will insist on clear policies for ethical conduct in all facets of the school system.

I want to make a real difference for our children. I believe I bring the experience, leadership, and integrity that are required.  If you ever need me, please contact me at .
