I’m running for Spokane School Board (Position 4) because I want to give back to the community. I went to Spokane schools and so does my daughter. I’d love to be able to use my past and present experiences to help ensure that we have an exceptional learning environment for future students too.

I am a working parent and a long time resident of the Spokane area. As a board member I would be a voice for the parents across our school district who are currently struggling to make ends meet, who find “work/life balance” is an elusive target, and who depend on our public school system for much more than just providing an education.
I will advocate for teachers, support staff, and working parents to have the tools and resources they need to be successful. I will work to expand the unique learning-opportunities and promote a curriculum that develops practical skills.
Education is a bridge to greater opportunity for many and our public schools have a significant impact on working families. When it is working well, public schools are an asset to working families, but it can become an obstacle when your child is struggling in the classroom.
As a school board member I will advocate for more resources to be available at more schools across the district, for earlier and more effective help when students are struggling, and for a more project-based curriculum that focuses on developing practical life skills, like: budgeting, civics, building trades, and project planning.
