Why should voters choose you in this election?

I care deeply that each child, all 26,500+ of them – strive for their potential – their own point of excellence. I am passionate in ACTing to Restore Excellence to the student of Richland 2 by being accountable, communicative and effective in technology use.

For the last several years, performance of students in nearly every front has not shown any improvement mark of individual excellence – in fact we have seen a decline all the while spending millions for projects with no empirical evidence. The opportunity for each and every one of our 26,500-plus students must be forefront in our Board direction. The criteria is simple – Does this contribute to student success?

I will ACT (through Accountability, Communication, effective Technology) to Restore Excellence in Education!
