I believe that public education in Rochester should be excellent and accessible to every family that has a child to educate. Our schools shape the quality of life here in the City, so the School Board's vision and oversight of the district is critical.
I am running for one of four seats that are up for election this year because: 1) I view city schools as assets like diamonds in the rough, 2) I have been deeply involved in city schools since my children attended them from kindergarten through graduation and, 3) I see improving public education as one of the most important social justice issues of our time.
Currently the board has no Commissioners with a classroom-based and educational research background, so I am excited to bring these much needed assets to the School Board. We have work to do to develop our schools and I would be honored to serve you in this capacity.
