Statement of Philosophy
philosophy serving as a school board member is to be proactive, straight-forward,
decisive, fair and mindful of the students and staff. Working within the board
as a team player is a priority as we keep the whole operation of the
education structure of our ESM community moving forward and continuing the hard
work previous boards have put forth.
ESM School Board reputation of stability and continuity in achieving goals for
the District needs to have that progression and advancement. Since there are
many demands being placed on our students, staff and administration with state
academic standards, economic conditions and our fast-paced life of our society
being a proponent of what ESM offers is a must.
schools provide our students with a variety of needed skills with our strategic
plan. It is imperative that the purpose of the education students receive at
ESM will prepare and lead them into their chosen field of interest to work in a
global society as productive citizens. I want to be an advocate of support for
the students, staff and administration in our 21st century
As a public
employee, my experience working with all entities involved in our community
from police, fire departments, highway, recreation, unions, charities and volunteer
groups is important. This builds and forms partnerships while supporting our school
community and the whole community in general. Trust can be built to achieve what
a community truly wants to achieve.
