A Positive Impact

As an education consultant and a former elementary school teacher, I believe that I would be a positive addition to the Wetbrook Board of Education. Education is my passion and I want to be able to use the skills and knowledge I’ve attained to help make Westbrook public schools the best they can be.

I have a firsthand understanding of school and classroom budgeting, implementing new curriculum, special education, and labor issues. As an education consultant, I’ve assisted schools from all across Connecticut and know what works and what doesn’t work in our public schools. With these skills, I would be able to make a positive impact on day one.

In addition, I would be a strong voice against too much state involvement in our educational decisions or anything hinting of forced regionalization. I believe Westbrook’s decisions should be kept local and would always listen to Westbrook parents and/or taxpayers, teachers, and, of course, our wonderful students.

I would be honored to serve Westbrook Public Schools on the Board of Education and I encourage your readers to vote for me on Nov. 5.
