I'm a former teacher and the mother of four children in three different FCCPS schools who is passionate about public education and literacy. I believe in Falls Church City Public Schools. I'm grateful for the excellent education they provide and am ready to use my experience and skills to work hard for our students, families, and teachers.
I've been a part of all kinds of schools - big and small, public and private, in the U.S. and abroad. I understand what makes schools great, and I believe our schools truly deserve their reputation for excellence. But we should always strive to be better. During a time of so much social and political turmoil, we're being forced to make countless difficult decisions about our safety, our priorities, and our values. Falls Church City deserves a leader who can make those decisions for our schools rooted in experience and strong relationships, who brings a balanced perspective on our community's many strengths, and who commits to serving the greater good.
If elected to the Falls Church City School Board, I pledge to serve all of our students and families equitably. I commit to respecting the professional expertise of our teachers. And I look forward to leading with responsive and open communication.
I hope to earn your vote on November 2!
