To the Editor:
So, I was at the BOE Meeting last night. During public comments there was a lot of emotional discussion regarding the politics of campaigning and the mud slinging that went on. I post this here in the hopes that we can all refocus on what our district is about. First and foremost, it’s about the children/our children. This divide that has been growing in our community is destructive and hurts everyone! BOTH sides. READ MORE

I would like to express my gratitude to members of the community who supported my campaign for Trustee of the North Shore Schools Board of Education. Thank you for your trust. I will do my best to justify the confidence you have demonstrated.
In addition, I would like to acknowledge my opponents, Lara Gonzales and Robert Mazzella, for conducting their campaigns with the utmost integrity. May we strive for this standard in future elections.
The campaign experience has given me a deeper appreciation for our community. The budget meetings, “meet and greets”, gatherings of senior citizens and lunch with young mothers has enabled me to embrace the diversity of our community. Although opinions may have been varied, the unifying theme was one of pride in our schools.
My commitment is to use my experience and expertise along with my deep concern for the well being of our children to lift the district to higher levels of excellence. I am honored with this privilege.
THANK YOU TO THE NORTH SHORE COMMUNITY

As a public school teacher and school leader, I have advocated for almost twenty years on behalf of children and families in other districts. Effective July 1, 2014, as Trustee, I will have the distinct privilege of advocating for all children in our school district. I hope to represent you and yours well.
