Bringing steady, experienced leadership to Eastern Carver County Schools.
I’m a visionary leader, an empathetic listener, and an effective communicator. I’m a lifelong learner, a parent, and a teacher. I’m energized by collaboration and challenge. And I’ve been passionately committed to world-class education throughout my life and career.
As an Eastern Carver County School Board member, I will lead with…
…for the professional training and expertise of our teachers and staff
…for ideological differences and unique perspectives of community members
…for all learners, who each deserve a quality educational experience
…for efforts of leadership, including past and present School Board members
…to communicate with transparency, honesty, and sincerity
…to take responsibility for and ownership of decisions and their consequences
…to take seriously my moral obligation as a steward of taxpayer resources
…to maintain a commitment to responsiveness, adaptation, and humility
…in believing that our district’s best days are visible on the horizon
…in assuming good faith and best intentions of all community members
…in focusing on solving problems, not dwelling on past mistakes
…in maintaining that our learners’ incredible potential should inspire us all
Where I Stand
It’s a consequential time in our world, and that’s certainly reflected in our schools. While the work of a school board member requires both breadth and depth of understanding, I’ve identified four issues as areas of focus to respond to our immediate needs.
“Wealth of Experience”
– David Lachman, Chaska
“Does Her Research”
– Kip Johnson, Retired Educator
“Advocate for Children”
– Bethany Collins, Chanhassen
