I am passionate about public education because I know how powerful a force it can be. Teachers who believed in me, who inspired me when I was young, changed my life, encouraging me to study, go to college, and move beyond the poverty into which I was born.
Wenatchee schools do a great job for some of our children. I believe we can do more. Decisions need to be made with total transparency, and in collaboration with families, educators and the community. I see excellence in our schools, but also see complancy.
It's not enough to give our children an adequate education. We must give every child an excellent education. I am keenly aware of the challenges facing many students in our schools. I hear from families who struggle to be heard as they work to obtain the help and resources their children need to succeed. We need a clear culture of listening and responding to parents.
I love my city. If Wenatchee is to thrive, we must have a public school district that shines. Our district can do better in some areas. Our children must graduate with the skills and knowledge they need to go on to colleges, universities, trades, and skilled careers. Graduation must mean more than a number of credits. When children are educated, they will graduate.
Wenatchee schools are doing good things. I believe we can do better for our children. I will bring my experience and passion to the task of making Wenatchee schools the best possible for every student.
