"A position on the BOE is an important one. As stewards entrusted by the community with school funds, the Board must strike a balance between those funds and our school district's educational goals. Board members must strive to ensure that every dollar spent supports students in realizing their potential. We want kids to dream big, and so we've got to make tough - but sound and well-informed - choices that motivate and provide lifelong tools and skills that help them to achieve those dreams. Education is an exceptional endeavor, in that, as a community, we really are all in this together. We all have a stake in its outcome - our future."
