Informed Decisions - Community Connections
As a District 41 Board member, I have respectfully questioned the administration and regularly engaged the community so that I am able to make the most informed decisions possible.
My background in research, experience with Lincoln PTA, PTA Council, 41 Forward, and frequent attendance at Board of Education meetings two years to joining the board prepared me well.
My guiding principles for district decision-making are...
Students at the heart of all decisions
Informed decisions supported by data and valid analysis
Ensure long-term fiscal sustainability
As a D41 Board Member, I positively represent the district throughout the community.
Open communication with all D41 stakeholders
Trust & Verify
Respect intentions, explore evidence within context
Recognize strengths and expertise with gratitude
Governing by making student-focused, data-driven, and fiscally sustainable decisions, reached through respectful engagement with stakeholders is my goal. It requires flexible thinking, active listening, thoughtful reflection, and applying what I learn.
As a board member, I have advocated for:
Continued Board Development, particularly related to governance and the use of data in decision-making
Supporting professional development for staff
Improved projections for opportunities to accelerate learning and meet emerging needs
Creating a plan to provide Full Day Kindergarten
Increasing flexibility of future boards by allowing district revenue to increase by inflation via the full levy
