I have much vested with the schools and the district having two kids in the schools. I am a advocate for better education for special needs children. I am a PTO mom and in school volunteer. I have assisted others in advocating for their rights. I have worked with various groups among them are volunteering with the Boy Scouts, working with the Kohl\\\'s Care events that raise money for youth groups. Helping out at our church youth group Logo\\\'s. While living in Virginia for 8 years I volunteered for the Navy/Marine Corps Relief Society, the family support group for deployed soldiers and was involved in organizing their home coming events etc. Last of all, I have faithfully attended the board meetings for the last 2 years to keep abreast of what is happening in District 15.

For the past 9 years I have served on the McHenry District 15 school board. During this time I have been part of a team that has raised levels of student achievement while implementing the many changes that are occurring in education. Additionally I was part of the strategic planning team that set goals for the District. As a current board member I now am in a position to ensure that these goals are a priority and that District initiatives continue to address the needs outline in the strategic plan. My 9 years of history with the District coupled with my job as an elementary school principal allows me to bring a unique perspective to the role of a board member.
