I have always believed that education is the most powerful tool to change the world. Through the pandemic we lost a lot, especially when it comes to schools. In the past years we have lost learning, lost relationships with students, and the community has suffered because of it. Society has often let teachers take the blame for these losses. As a passionate teacher, I can tell you that this is not the case. I am running for a seat on Norfolk’s School Board because I believe that we need someone to represent the community who knows exactly what it is like in the classrooms right now. We need to bring unity to our education community, unity among teachers and parents, and unity on the board as well. I believe, that if elected, I can bridge the gaps and work with everyone in order to bring better quality education to the students of Norfolk.
