LSDMC Election 2018
Candidates' Statements (in alphabetical order)
I believe an organization like LSDMC is an integral part of any successful school community. It’s important to me that decisions affecting our student’s academic lives continue to be considered, discussed, and agreed upon by the very people these decisions actually affect… teachers, staff, community members, parents, and the students themselves.
I would love to put my experiences as an Advisory Board Member, Operations Manager, HR manager, and budget officer to work in the LSDMC setting. To me, parent involvement remains critical throughout a student’s education and as a Clark parent, I’d be honored to be a part of our LSDMC.
I am not new to Clack but as a parent of a special needs kid I have found it difficult to find a way to be involved in helping make Clark a great school. My older child was a student at Walnut and I enjoyed participating in the various activities he was involved with there. As a parent with such a unique child at Clark I would love the opportunity to help grow the inclusive community I have come to know at Clark, and believe I can help ensure it continues to be a wonderful school for all its students.
I am a proud parent of two CPS students; my son is a 9th grader at Clark and my daughter is in the 8th grade at Walnut Hills. I had the good fortune to attend grade school and high school in the Wyoming City School District. I had an excellent education and high school experience and would like for my children to say the same thing about their experiences at their respective schools. I have a Masters of Education and have been teaching for 18 years. I would like to serve on the Clark LSDMC so that I can take an active role in understanding the needs of the students and faculty of Clark, and be a contributing participant in furthering the school’s continued success. I believe that this committee is the right place for me to learn about Clark, it’s successes, the opportunities for positive change and to be a voice for the parent community. I am a firm believer in the proverb “it takes a village”, and I am motivated to do my part for the students of Clark Montessori.
