Education is the great equalizer.
That's something I truly believe, and it's because of that belief that I'm running for the Alexandria City School Board (District B).
Our students deserve a Board with highly qualified individuals who understand the challenges facing our public school system. We have the ability to be the top ranked school system in the region, and having spent two decades working with students as a teacher, parent, and business leader, I see how we can turn that vision into a reality.
As a current ACPS parent for the past 7 years (with 13 more to go!), I see the potential for what our public schools have to offer, and am personally invested in the school system’s continuing success. As a classroom teacher for more than six years, I understand how board policy can promote measurable results for both our students and teachers.
As the former CEO of Urban Alliance, I had the opportunity to introduce more than 2,000 high school seniors annually to corporate internships and was proud to establish the program in Alexandria’s TC Williams in 2013. I have the business leadership experience to effectively serve on a board, manage large budgets, and engage all stakeholders in the decision making process.
The Alexandria City Public School system has unique opportunities that lie ahead, but I cannot do it alone.
Through investing in the ACPS staff, providing efficient resources to students and teachers as well as preparing for the exciting future growth of our schools, we can work towards ensuring all students receive a first-class education.
I invite you to share your vision and priorities for Alexandria City Public Schools, join our campaign as a volunteer, or contribute so we can run a strong campaign!
Thank you for your support!
With sincere appreciation,
