I am excited and honored at the opportunity to represent the families of Hamburg as part of the Board of Education.
I am a life long resident and proud Hamburg alumni. I have three children in HCSD in 1st, 6th, and 8th grade. I have been a Bulldog for life and love brining my children up in the Hamburg tradition.
My background is in Education and I hold my bachelor's degree from SUNY Fredonia in Elementary Education and master's degree from St. Bonaventure University in Literacy. I have NYS certifications in Elementary Education PK-6, Reading PK-12, Physical Education PK-12, and Career and Technical Education 7-12.
I taught public school at the elementary through high school level for 10 years. I am keenly aware of the dynamics of a classroom and the power of having a strong connection between the school and parents.
In 2012, I was hired by the Buffalo Public Schools to write district curriculum for the Career and Technical Education Department that was approved by NY State and rolled out district wide.
I taught until 2019 when I launched my own personal coaching business business and made the transition to entrepreneurship. It is the perfect transition from educating children to teaching and mentoring adults.
Last year in particular, I noticed a disconnect between the voices of the parents and what was happening in our schools. I strongly believe that mothers and fathers have the God given responsibility of caring for and making decisions in the best interest of their children. I began attending school board meetings and speaking each month on behalf of parents who want a voice in the decisions that effect their child's health, including masking and vaccination.
I have remained in constant contact with our superintendent and administrators throughout the past year; fostering a productive relationship while holding them accountable when needed.
When elected to the Board, I will continue to build these positive connections while focusing on:
Fiscal Monitoring on Capital Improvement Project
Parent Partnered Curriculum
Board Transparency and Responsiveness
THANK YOU for your support and contribution to my campaign. It's a GREAT day to be a Bulldog!
