As I have served on the board, both as a member and as the Clerk and the President during my 4 years, I have proven that I seek to include ALL voices in the conversation.  I treat teachers as valued professionals, and listen to all staff members who serve our students and want them to be safe and learn in clean, well maintained environments. I have met with dozens of groups of parents and individuals to help them navigate their school to get what is best for their students. I have been accountable for decisions we have made, and sought for greater transparency in how we answer questions, meet challenges, and allocate our scare resources.
