I have always been a believer in public and community service. When we moved back to Edina to raise our kids, I wanted to be a part of the community and give back in any way possible.
My belief is that EPS provides incredible opportunities for students, and I owe a debt to the school system and community for making me the person I am today. I want to make a positive impact on the lives of students in the community, whether it is through academics, athletics, the arts, community service, or the overall EPS experience.
Learning is evolving at an incredible pace, and I want to help keep EPS moving forward. I have a great appreciation for the complexities associated with delivering an excellent educational experience. The balancing act and partnership between students, staff, administration, parents, community, and government is something that is not easy to manage. The roles that each group plays impact each student and family differently and we as a district need to respect, build trust, and factor in the variables when making decisions that impact the experience.
I enjoy working through complex issues and developing practical solutions that often involve imperfect data. I am an empathetic listener who strives to respect that every person has a unique perspective, and that the experience may occur at the same time and place, but they are not necessarily the same experience, but they can certainly have a shared experience.
As a leader, a phrase that I always remember is ‘know what you don’t know’ education is complex, and I will work tirelessly to understand, build partnerships between all, restore trust, and try and keep moving EPS forward.
I want to uphold the Mission & Vision of EPS and keep working towards delivering on five year strategic plan, by developing practical solutions based on a partnership and alignment between families, teachers, administration and the school board.
