My husband and I have chosen to raise our children in this community and we want to give back to our community. When ISD 199 thrives, our community thrives. I want to help be a voice between the schools and neighbors, highlighting the successes of our district as well as the areas of need. Wouldn’t it be wonderful to be a part of a community that really rallied around the schools, and felt a great sense of ownership and investment in the future of all students? I would love to see families move into our community because they love the small town feel as well as the quality education their children would receive. As a School Board member, I would strive to help keep open lines of communication between the school district and the community, so that there would be a greater sense of understanding and comradery between the two.
