How do your skills or experience set you apart as a candidate?
I have several years of experience on the executive board of my union local which included figuring a budget and running meetings when called upon to do so and have also been on several boards for various types of nonprofits.
What do you believe the school board can do to narrow academic achievement gaps?
I think by keeping a consistent staff in the classroom we can provide a stable learning environment which in turn helps children learn better.
Is the budget and school funding the biggest challenge facing the district?
I would work with the staff of the district to evaluate the current budget and take any suggestions from staff to see where we could possibly reduce costs while still keeping quality programs and services available to the students of the district.
