Why do you want to run for the school board?

Sean from Highlands Ranch asked, "Why do you want to run for the school board?"


Every student should have the freedom to attend a quality public school. They deserve the opportunity to reach their full potential and to participate meaningfully in the civic and economic life of the community. Public education is about closing opportunity gaps and opening doors for every student. 

Given my passion for public education and for serving, I cannot imagine a better volunteer role for me at this time in my life. My professional experience over the last 5+ years working with superintendents and school board members across the state has made me knowledgeable in understanding the role of school board members and the challenges that our schools face. More specifically, my skill sets are perfectly aligned with the work necessary in the school district. The district’s strategic planning process is well underway and my experience in strategy, state policy, school finance and board development would benefit the district leadership team.
