STATEMENT

Over the past two years, the Fairfield Public Schools has solidified its Vision of a Graduate. As a Board member, I am committed to engaging stakeholders in order to make that vision become a reality for all students. Our graduates should be critical thinkers, innovators, responsible citizens, communicators, collaborators, and goal directed, resilient learners.  

The BoE recently elected a new Superintendent who is ready to align this educational mission with the business of our district. I hope to have an opportunity to support him in these efforts. Through strategic planning, responsible budgeting and open communication, we can work together to balance the varied needs of the school district with the needs of the larger community.
