I am running for the North Thurston School Board because I believe that ALL children can learn and thrive in a changing world and quality education ensures that outcome.
Having lived, worked, and volunteered in this community since 1999, I have raised five children, all of whom attended NTPS. Like many others in this community, I am an immigrant and have been a military child and wife. My educational, professional, and personal background and experience make me uniquely qualified to serve as a school board member.
Over the years, I have observed changes in the community that now make Lacey and schools in the NTSD the most diverse in Thurston County and the leadership should reflect that diversity.
Education is now at a critical crossroads in this society and policy making at the school board level is more important than ever. Our children and our schools thrive when our youth, their families and our educators are supported, heard, feel safe, and welcomed.
We must ensure that ALL students have equal access to an equitable education and that they be provided more support for their emotional well-being. Your vote for me provides the opportunity to serve our community in this capacity.
