WHY I AM RUNNING
Having two children recently graduate with honors from our Newport News system, I am very much aware of what is working and what isn't.
One of my biggest concerns is to maintain an environment for learning - from K3 to 12th grade. It is my goal to inspire learning by showing students, parents, teachers, staff and our admistrative help that we our concerned about their concerns and well beingand future.
I believe as we shape our students into productive citizens we improve our communities throughout our entire city.
