I am currently serving on the Board of Education in my eigth year, and the time has flown by. It has been a very rewarding experience and I am very thankful for the opportunity to serve the school district. With help from the administators, fellow board members and staff members, I have learned a great deal about our school district. Also, having children in the High School, Middle school and Elementary, along with Deb teaching in the system, I have a great view of what is going on in the district. My goal as a board member is to provide the highest quality education for all Wood River's students while practicing good stewardship of the tax district's resources. Although there are many challeges today in education, I am grateful for everyone's help in working to achieve this goal.
Wood River has been a great place for me to grow up and has also been a wonderful place for our family to live. The school has been, and will continue to be, an important part of my life and my family's life in the future, as well as the community's. I feel lucky for the opportunty to be involved in the school district at this level. It will be exciting to continue to set policy as a board, and establish criteria in dealing with the challenges that await us as a school district in the present and future.
