LETTER: Quality of our public schools helps define our community

To Ozaukee Press:

I am honored to run for the newly created at-large position on the Port Washington-Saukville School Board.

The taxpayers in our district have generously trusted the School Board by passing a referendum providing some wonderful physical improvements to our schools.

I believe it would be my duty to make certain that the district is fiscally responsible as it moves forward in maintaining and improving facilities and programs in the district.

I will be completing my 30th year of teaching elementary and middle school students in Cedarburg.

Through the years I’ve learned a lot about what it means to not only meet the needs of many different students and families, but also to make certain kids are prepared to think for themselves.

We want kids to be positive influences in our communities once they leave our schools.

My husband Russell and I live in Port Washington.

Russell is an alumnus of Port Washington High School. Our children pursued different interests and talents while attending Port High.

As parents we are grateful for the many learning opportunities our kids had.

Our son graduated from Universal Technical Institute, and our daughter from UW-Madison in forestry.

We are grateful for the learning opportunities our kids had with the public school system.

Public schools mean many different things to many people, and that is a challenge I am prepared to take on.

I am excited to work with the administration, board members, all of the exceptional school district staff and the community.

We’re all a part of this great learning community.

The quality of our public schools help define who we are.

I am asking for your vote on April 2.
