Why I want to serve on the Board of Education:

I am running for reelection to the Board of Education for Elmira City School District. I have two children, one a 2018 graduate from EHS and one currently attending Ernie Davis Academy. I have enjoyed being part if the team that is guiding our district. The BOE needs voices that represent students, parents, community, and educators. As a parent I feel it is important to be involved in the direction that our district is headed. We have made great strides in our Community Schools Initiative and have seen graduation rates on the rise. I love visiting the schools and learning about all of the great things going on in our classrooms. It has been a rewarding 6 years and I hope to be able to serve this district for another 3 year term.

Education Summary:

I graduated from Corning West High School, received my AS degree from Corning Community College and have earned all credits for a BS degree from Cazenovia College, majoring in writing and Psychology.

Career Summary:

I have held a number of interesting jobs throughout my life including several years as an Executive Secretary at Hughes Tool Company in Houston, Texas; a legal secretary for the Warren County (PA) District Attorney's Office, and most recently as the Administrative Assistant to the VP/Dean of Academic Affairs at Corning Community College. I retired from CCC in May 2012 after 25 years of service. I found retirement rewarding but soon realized that I wasn't quite ready to be unemployed. I was lucky enough to be given the opportunity to work as a teacher aide at Hendy Elementary School for two years. I have lived most of my life in the Corning/Elmira area, with the exception of a brief 10 years in Houston, Texas. 

Why I want to serve on the Board of Education:

I have worked the majority of my life in education. There is nothing more rewarding than to be a part of student success...at both the K-12 levels and the college level. I care about students. I care about our community. I want to see this next generation be successful and productive. I feel like I have the intelligence, the compassion, and the empathy to serve our community well. Learning is a life-long process and I look forward to serving on the ECSD board with excitement. Our youth is our future! Let's get them prepared to lead the next generation.
