My Top 3 Priorities

  • I believe we must aggressively recruit and retain excellent teachers to provide every opportunity for all students to reach their potential.
  • Students cannot successfully take advantage of the educational opportunities provided by their teachers if they are not in class. We must reduce student absences.
  • Every student must be able to read, write, spell , use math effectively, and use technology upon graduation from high school.
