A Thoughtful Approach to Student Achievement
"Over the past four years of service on the Virginia Beach School Board, I have sought to ensure that every student has access to to the quality instruction and resources they need to prepare for whatever paths they may choose after leaving Virginia Beach City Public Schools. I've relied on my experience as a parent of successful graduates of VBCPS, in business training and management, and in the classroom to thoughtfully approach discussion and decision making on the school board. I ask for your support to allow me to continue to serve the students and citizens of Virginia Beach as a member of your school board."
