WHY I AM
I am passionate about addressing the complex issues facing public education in STL. As a parent of 11 children who have attended city schools, I have personally experienced the challenges of IEPs, early bus times, the effects of trauma on school performance, and navigating through the many school choices. With my military experience in evaluating systems and personal experience on district task forces, I am confident that I can help develop plans to make great education accessible to every student in every city school.
