Bring new perspectives: I will bring fresh thoughts and ideas to shake up the status quo.
Attend all meetings: We are a decision-making body and can not repeatedly miss meetings like my opponent has done. He missed 24 meetings out of 48. I will attend all meetings.
Work with everyone and create Student -focused Board: I feel some board members are not students-focused, rather are behaving as individuals. I will work with the Superintendent, Teachers, Principals, and other Board members to create a Student-focus Action Plan.
Future long-term vision: I will help pave a path for our students to be successful for years to come.
Participate in outside competitions: I will encourage our teachers and parents to think beyond the District box and aim for state/national achievement in challenging competitions like spelling bees, science balls, and robotics fairs.
Promote diversity and stop bullying: I will help promote diversity and stop bullying in schools by encouraging kids to think beyond race, gender, nationality, color or origin.
Improve quality of classrooms: I will work diligently and creatively to make sure our kids have the classroom conditions they need, including updated technology.
Best use of all resources from state: We are not pursuing all the help we could get from Washington State government, and I will devote my time and energy to securing these resources for Steilacoom Historic School District.
