As a single mother, lawyer, and Ward 5 School Board seat holder, I believe the experience I have gained over the past two years, and these unprecedented times, make me uniquely qualified to continue to represent residents of Ward 5. I have listened, learned, sometimes the hard way, and will use these lessons and apply them to the challenges we face as a community.
The field of election of Dover 2021 is defined:Here’s who’s running and who’s unsubscribed
As a single parent, I was able to bring an often under-represented perspective to the school board. With a young daughter, now in second grade, I understand the challenges we face as parents and taxpayers. A successful public school system is the cornerstone of a thriving community. I will be committed to working in a financially responsible manner while providing our children with a quality education.
In the first year of my tenure (2020), most of our work focused on the safety of our students and staff, as well as the logistics of virtual learning. I voted in favor of using federal funds to buy devices that would allow Dover to achieve 1: 1 technology, which our friends in other districts have had for some time. I have helped the school district make positive improvements to our infrastructure, most recently through the allocation of ESSR III funds to help improve ventilation and overall HVAC systems at Horne Street, Woodman Park and Dover Middle School . I voted in favor of creating a robust, multi-level support system to meet unique and individual learning needs and enhance socio-emotional learning. As a member of the Equity Vision Keepers committee, I have worked with students, staff and community members to effect positive change in our school community, policies and practices. In the future, I will continue to prioritize socio-emotional learning, improving school culture, improving the quality of teaching through staff development and various teaching practices. hiring.
The success of the school system is important to every homeowner, taxpayer and resident of Dover. High quality schools lead to better public safety, stable real estate values, increased community pride and an overall better future.
I will continue to be a strong advocate for all of our students, parents, and professional educators and administrators who make it all work. I would greatly appreciate your support on November 2 at St John’s Methodist Church, 28 Cataract Ave.
