Why?

It's a common question:  Why run for re-election?

"Why wouldn't I?" might be the better question. I wish to serve because I feel strongly about the importance and excellence of public education and Loveland City Schools in preparing our future generations for a productive adult life.

 

I believe in a public education system that empowers, encourages, and supports our students each year from Preschool to graduation to achieve to the highest levels they are individually capable, through a culture of high expectations and an infrastructure of effective and diverse support.  I have worked for this as a parent of two students in the district, and I believe my experiences, both within the school system and through my professional teaching career, can bring value to the district as a whole.

 

I see Loveland as a great district, but I believe there is still work to do to ensure the best outcomes for our students once they leave Loveland and compete on a national and international stage. I feel personally motivated to continue the work that has been started and to keep the focus on all students and their paths forward.

A Bit About Me...

A Positive Perspective

I place an exceptionally high value on public education. It can be said that I have been involved with public education in one way or another my entire life. Within Loveland specifically, I have been involved with, and exposed to, a significant breadth of school programs and situations (as listed below). It is through this unique combination of experiences, combined with my professional educational background, that I believe I provide a unique perspective to the District.

 

Working for better public education has simply been part of my life for as long as I can remember.
