Biographical Information

What is the single most important issue facing your school district and how would you address it?

Current Occupation Supply Planner, PepsiCo
Education Associate Degree in Accounting
Training & Experience Previously served on the Perry BOE from 2012-2015. Currently, serving on the Apollo BOE as Perry's representative since 2014.
The single most important issue currently facing our school district is the ability to adequately prepare our students for the 21st century workforce due to lack of funding and available technology. In the past couple years, our district has increased the access to devices by initiating a 1:1 Chromebook initiative for grades 3-12, and the addition of smart projectors within the new elementary building. To address this issue, there has to be a unified front between the BOE and the administration, Ms. VanGorder, Ms. Schooler, and Mr. Weingart. Trusting that the administration and BOE are keeping the students at forefront of all decisions, this issue can be addressed by supporting any initiatives the administration would introduce that would further help develop our students in all grades with 21st century skills. Supporting them may include approving funding for additional devices, encouraging professional development for district staff, and assisting with the location of funds outside the district that directly support this issue.
