Besides my current employment in the field of education, I believe my years of experience working in the actual field will allow me to perform the duties of a School Board Director. I vehemently want to eliminate PSSA & Keystone testing. I have witnessed numerous situations that have caused emotional distress on hundreds of students & families.
TASD has developed numerous occupational programs over the last few years and I believe these valuable programs will help the students of the TASD in future employment. Trinity High School partnered with the National Math Science Initiative and was rated the #1 school in the United States of America for AP score improvement in 2017. In 2019, Trinity HS was recognized by the Pennsylvania Department of Education and received a "School that Teach" recognition. Furthermore, THS was rated a top HS nationally by US News and Report in 2019.
