Of all the gifts we give our children, a solid education and deep love of learning establish key pillars for future success and happiness. I am running for Board of Education with great passion, conviction and the hope of achieving the following:
*Continue to build on our already great schools
*Be part of the energy that fuels a commitment to seeing each of our students achieve to their fullest potential while recognizing individual learning styles, strengths and weaknesses
*Provide a strong voice for the diverse interests, needs and concerns of the many people who contribute to the success of Suffield schools including students, teachers, parents and community members
While the experience I’ve outlined qualifies me to run for the Board of Education, nothing has prepared me better than my role as Mom. To understand differentiated learning, the value of a great teacher, how hard it is to grow up, one need only to look at their own children for insights and answers. When deciding whether to run, I asked my oldest son his thoughts. His response, “you can’t make a difference just by watching.” It’s fair to say I’ve learned as much from my kids as they’ve learned from me. I’m ready to make a difference with that knowledge.
