Call me with your concerns
I’ve heard some troubling things in the past few days:
- Some people believe that as an elementary parent, I won’t focus on middle school issues.
- Some voters care where the candidates live and which school their kids attend.
I am running for the Board of Education to represent parents in all of the schools; elementary, middle, and high school. I am running to represent non-parents, too.
My cell phone number is on my web site and on the card that I hand out. It is 914-218-7696.
You can call me now – and you can call me if I am privileged enough to earn a seat on the board. Engaging with the wider Katonah-Lewisboro community is a cornerstone of my campaign.
I am happy to meet with anyone in the course of this campaign.
A few words on middle school:
I think that middle school is the hardest age and a time of big transitions. 6th grade is when kids need a lot of support. Guidance counselors, proper class sizes, and a plan for each student is critical. In middle school, there must be opportunities to develop new interests and to discover new talents. Every student should have a chance to thrive in middle school. Every parent should be informed of the impact of curriculum decisions in middle school that set the course for their child’s future.
