My Top 3 Priorities

  • Student Safety- Expand our mental health counselors and social workers for students and families. I want to ensure that we complete our upgrades to classroom roofs, fire alarms, water pipes, electrical wiring, and security cameras.
  • Family Engagement-We have increased family engagement through our workshops, events, and committees, that we are nationally recognized by the National Network of Partnership Schools at John Hopkins University.
  • Increased Enrichment-Students need enrichment like art, dance, and music. I will continue to use our local funds and grants to provide students with an enriching school experience.
