Why I’m Running
My husband and I grew up in the metroplex and attended TCU, but like many of you, we moved our family to GCISD for the excellent schools and strong sense of community. As parents and business owners, we have a vested interest in ensuring our district remains one that attracts families, protects property values, and graduates successful and prepared students.
Because of my background in strategic planning for non-profits, I immediately became an active volunteer for the schools and was appointed as 1 of 30 members of GCISD’s ten year Strategic Planning Team, called LEAD 2021. This team established a direction for the district that will bring our students self-directed, individualized learning and the technology to make it all possible.
Through most of my career, I’ve purposefully accepted newly created or reinvented positions, continually challenging me to define problems, create solutions, and take action. It was in this spirit that I started Grapevine-Colleyville SAGE. This non-profit parent group formed to connect gifted students, their parents, and educators to information and resources that neighboring districts have had for years. Thanks to our active board, we now serve over 1,000 parents across GCISD, many of whom have expressed that SAGE gave them access to information that they never knew existed.
The success of this parent group propelled me forward to work towards the same vision for all families. If elected as a Board Trustee, I commit to serving as a resource not only to our district, but to our parents and community partners in an effort to increase involvement and improve communication. A focus on partnerships is in our LEAD 2021 objectives and will be especially important as we roll out various phases of plan and move away from a more traditional “one-sized fits all” approach.
Through SAGE, I know the difference that it makes when parents are informed and involved and when kids are accepted for their differences. Through LEAD 2021, I know that children will grow when their unique needs are considered. Through my involvement in school finance I know we must continue working to keep more of our tax dollars for our local schools by updating the funding formula, removing the cap on revenue, and re-establishing local control. Through my experience, I know that you can’t predict the future, but you can plan strategically and entrust decisions to those with proven results, vision, ethics, and commitment to serve.
I welcome the opportunity to earn your support. Please contact me so that we can work together serving as A Voice for Our Kids.
