    Educational philosophy: I believe the education of our children is one of the most important tasks we have as a community. We must work to ensure academic excellence and opportunity for all students in District 203, challenging each student to reach their full potential and working to close the academic achievement gap. As a community, we must work collaboratively to set academic and financial priorities for our students and our school district to ensure our long-term academic and financial success.
