As a mother of young children, I plan to be involved in this district and community for a very long time. The Ferndale School district and community is blessed with strong parental involvement and the gift of diversity. I appreciate the gifts that this community has to offer and will advocate to see to it that this gem is preserved!
I understand the issues involved in the district from all sides. I believe strongly that the entire district must be represented, and that everyone has something to bring to the table….A rising tide lifts all boats, and working together we can achieve great things.
We need a school district that builds the minds and hearts of our children and strengthens our community. We need a district of such excellence that it is the natural first choice for every parent in the district. We need a district with such a commitment to equity and community responsibility that others hold us up as a model.
Having been on the Board for five years I want to continue working to keep Ferndale Public Schools one of the best full service school districts in the state….Experience and commitment are why you should vote for me.
I have three daughters in Ferndale schools and I want to play a part in ensuring the quality of our district. I want to offer my skills that equip me to communicate clearly with all parties striving toward the common goal of a strong school district.
