Years as a Carmel Resident? 7
Community Involvement Activities
For several years I have volunteered with our PTO and in our classrooms. I have served as a tutor and mentor to students to help them grow in the reading, presentation and math skills. I have also served in several faith-based programs in local organizations to encourage students to persevere during life's challenges.
I serve as a personal development coach to industry leaders, students and teachers in the community. I have partnered closely with several school administrators to share insight, ideas and provide support on strategic initiatives and programming.
1. What is your number one reason for wanting to serve on the school board?
I desire to serve on the board because I love Carmel, love children and believe the body leading our district should be comprised of a variety of perspectives and experiences.
2. What role does policy play/have in the function of the board?
Policy provides the guardrails our board operates within when making decisions for our district. It ensures uniformity across the district so that all families have an excellent experience no matter which school or classroom their children attend.
3. What legislative action at the state level would you support to improve education in our community.
I would support SB 246, providing mental and behavior health services is key to the development of our children.
4. What do you think is the biggest issue facing your district?
The biggest challenge facing our district is not only COVID but also the need to evolve our programing and school district culture to support the individual needs of all students with varying backgrounds and experiences.
5. If you were elected what one thing would you like to accomplish during your term?
I want to help continue the progress we are making with shaping our schools to be globally conscious. I desire to help our children consider how they embrace others with differing perspectives and experiences so they will have a mindset focused on making a positive impact that considers their needs and the needs of others.
