Every child deserves a champion: an adult who will never give up on them, who understands the power of connection, and insists they become
the best they can possibly be.
—the late Rita Pierson, Educator, Ted Talk Presenter
I am running to be re-elected to the Board of Education because I believe my experience, my knowledge, values, and principles are needed on the Board. I actively champion progressive values, prioritizing the needs of the most vulnerable students, and do the time-consuming hard work that is necessary to be a successful Board member.
I have been on the Board of Education (BOE) for 16 months and serve as the Policy Committee Chair for the BOE. I serve as the BOE’s representative to the Legal Services Administration of the Maryland Association of Boards of Education.
Leading up to my time on the BOE, I was the Chairperson for the Community Advisory Committee (CAC), the liaison between the BOE and the community at large. I served for two years as Vice Chairperson before my two terms as Chairperson for the CAC. I am the only Board member and candidate who has served on multiple policy advisory committees, which review and revise the school system’s policies. I have been a PTA President, PTA Secretary, Coordinator for the Carson Reading Room at Swansfield Elementary School, Science Fair Coordinator, grants writer and project manager, literacy project lead, Cultural Arts Coordinator, and parent volunteer for individual school-based efforts for robotics, orchestra, and soccer while my own children attended Swansfield Elementary, Harpers Choice Middle and Wilde Lake High Schools.
