Experience (35 words max) Former High School teacher and College Professor serving at public/private institutions. Upon transitioning out of the classroom to pursue full-time ecumenical duties, I've remained engaged as a tutor/mentor and a called upon ceremonial/commencement speaker.
Equal representation and equitable access to a fair/quality education. The board is not reflective of the GCS student body demographics. Students from various socio-economic and multi-ethnic backgrounds deserve safer schools & well paid/trained teachers to close all achievement gaps.
Xenophobia must be eliminated through the implementation & enforcement of policies at the school board & legislative levels. Educators who demonstrate such discrimination should be terminated and permanently sanctioned from being practitioners.
Opposed, given data demonstrating racial disparities, perceptions, and disproportionate disciplinary action upon children of color.
Experience (35 words max) Member of Board of Education from 1990-2008 and 2016-2018. Volunteer in schools, community & church.
My first priority is to make sure we have policies and procedures in place and our facilities updated to ensure our students are as safe as we can make them. Second, to secure mental health and counseling for our troubled students to minimize bullying and violence in our schools.
Equal access to learning for undocumented students is the right thing to do and is guaranteed by the law. We do not ask student status nor that of their parents. We also have a non-discrimination policy in place.
Teachers are trained to be teachers, not policemen.
