expect excellence

I believe our Charleston community expects and supports the achievement of ALL students to reach their fullest potential in high-quality public schools. As a school board member, I am committed to fulfilling these expectations.

I was elected to the Charleston County School Board to represent District 9...the region that includes James Island, Folly Beach, Kiawah, Seabrook, and parts of Johns Island and the City of Charleston.  I serve  because I care about all of our children getting a good education. When we moved to Charleston, I was shocked by our “minimally adequate” and under-resourced schools. As a Mom and an educator, I’ve worked to make incremental changes to improve teaching and learning. I believe now is the time for me to serve on the CCSD school board to do what I know are best practices to improve and innovate our schools for all children.
