School: E.M. Pease Elementary
Occupation: Principal
Experience: 6 years

I have exemplified this mission by working to ensure our students receive the best instruction possible, by educating students and parents on the importance of successfully completing high school and planning for college, and by sharing the numerous opportunities gained from obtaining a higher education. I am transitioning from a high school campus where I had the opportunity to share my own personal educational experiences as a female minority raised in a single parent household. Sharing this with my students provided them the insight needed to believe that they too can achieve. I have also arranged for students to connect with other adults who work in their field of interest to discuss the role that education plays in their career choice. In this way, students better understand the purpose of the school work that they are completing today to prepare them for tomorrow.
