I will encourage training throughout the school year for innovative digital learning that is not intimidating to teachers or students, especially for ESE students and ELL students.
I plan to work to eliminate the notion, that one size fits all; and welcome the creativity of teachers to introduce lessons that follow the standards and ensure that teacher flexibility is an accepted aspect of teacher evaluation.
Reduce the procedure of testing. Teachers should not have to stop teaching to proctor tests.
Introduce Vocational Education as standard curriculum, so academic success can be experienced by all students.
What do I want to make better?
Intensify and encourage an educational environment that will guarantee a successful future after High School- whether it is in the Work Force, through technical education or matriculation in an institute of Higher Learning.
Ensure a teaching and learning environment for students to expand their limitations as life-long learners to a successful future.
Encourage parents to discover the possibilities in their children and never stop believing in their potential to be great.
Introduce academic programs in schools that foster a competitive atmosphere. Every student must have an opportunity to learn. At all times the School Board must ensure that every child is receiving a quality education.
Cultivate Board Member relationships with teachers, parents and students by encouraging Town Hall meetings where parents and students can relay their concerns in a “non-judgmental” environment.
