As a strong supporter of our public schools I am directly involved in the school system as a classroom volunteer, a substitute teacher, and an active member of the PTA. I regularly speak on behalf of our students at Board of Education, Commissioner, and Town Hall meetings. This year, I have met with many teachers, parents, administrators, and students, as well as visited many of our schools. I am familiar with the unique strengths of our schools, but I also understand the areas that need improvement. I am running for the Board of Education so that I can continue to advocate for the success of each child who attends Carroll County Public Schools, as well as support the best interests of our staff, families, and community.
