It has been an honor to serve Fairfield the last 4 years and I hope to continue to do so for the next four. The last year and a half have been incredibly difficult on so many. We know it will take time and work to address the full scope of this impact upon our students, staff, families, and community. I am squarely focused on the task before us while enthusiastically celebrating our successes.  My education advocacy experience has taught me that when stakeholders from vastly different perspectives come together to focus on creative solutions to an issue, we can find our common ground, while ardently holding true to our values. I am committed to that process with my fellow colleagues on the Board of Education and with all of you.
