Being part of the decision-making for important staff positions helps to shape an organization.
The leaders of a district have a powerful effect on its future.
The leaders of today greatly affect the leadership of tomorrow.
Teachers need our support.
I am well respected by current State and Federal legislators on both sides of the aisle.
I will meet with them to discuss board and teachers' concerns.
I will listen to teachers' needs and communicate that to the board. In Arizona we have a critical teacher shortage.
Covid 19 is not helping the situation. We will need to manage the budget to best recruit and keep quality educators.
The way we act, react, and keep track of school finances can make or break an entire district’s reputation.
Tempe Elementary School District needs our community support.
Parents need to see School Board members out in the community supporting the residents, parents, teachers and administration.
I will be out in the community! We will need to keep and develop more relationships with community stakeholders such as internet companies to ensure all students have access to the internet for their online learning.
We have seen in the last few months how important a crisis management plan is.
I excel in crisis management and staying calm.
Covid 19 has magnified the inequality in our State. I will support all of our students no matter their race, income or needs level. All of our children deserve a quality public education.
I will continue to support nutritional services. The financial crisis is going to get worse before it gets better. Many of our Tempe Elementary School students rely on the meals we serve.
My home is in Tempe and I am a Mom!
My son has attended a Tempe Elementary School District school for the past one and a half years.
