I bring a broad perspective to the Board of Education - having been an educator in two different countries, teaching multiple disciplines, and working in communities with varying needs and resources. On the Wake County Board of Education I serve you not only with the perspective of an educator -- bringing my advanced knowledge of pedagogy, and education policy; but also as the mother of three children, two of whom are currently enrolled in Wake County Public Schools. Recently, we went through the IEP process with my eldest child who has learning differences.
I have a vested interest in the success of our students, our teachers and our community. My family chose to live in Wake County primarily because of it's diverse county wide school system and it's supportive, family friendly community.
