In Her Words:

“As an advocate at FAIRTEST, the National Center for Fair and Open Testing, (the optional SAT organization) I worked to improve assessments and teaching. My family has lived in Skillman for 14 years and my son attended Montgomery schools from K-12."

"Our focus on the school board this year: Hire a superintendent and a business administrator; investigate a later start time at the high school; full-day kindergarten; the food quality K-4; vegetarian meals; and, the social-emotional condition of our students. I would work to collect opinions from parents and staff through surveys, committees, and town halls.” ■
