Why are you running for election?
After graduating from Louisa Muscatine Community School District thrity years ago, I would like to help ensure that all current and future students are guaranteed a well rounded education. To do so would include monitoring and reviewing each of our schools performances to ensure we are meeting the needs of each and every student in our district and are prepared for future students.
When I attended the October 18th 2021 LMCSD board meeting, I heard mention about the “Character Counts” pillars and that this week is National Character Counts Week. I look forward to researching this more and if elected would like to see how the board’s goals, both current and future, align with these six pillars. The six pillars are: Trustworthiness, Respect, Responsibility, Fairness, Caring and Citizenship.
As a clinical nurse, it is important to have an open mind and be willing to work as a team to help with the continuity of care for our patients. If elected, I look forward to applying these same skills that are needed in providing what each current student and future student needs at Louisa Muscatine Community School District.

If elected, what steps would you take to improve perceptions of Muscatine in the surrounding area?
