Background: I’m a native Nevadan who has lived in District B for the last 22 years. I have been an active member for the PTA since the valley’s population boom of the 1990’s, and as a dental health professional, I have continued my commitment to children and education by volunteering both in the classroom and in dental clinics for underserved children.
1. Clark County School District is one of the largest in the United States. What can a small town like Mesquite do to see what resources are available for our kids to have a fair chance at a good education?
The best action voters in Mesquite and other small towns can take to ensure our children have the proper resources is to elect a School Board representative who understands the rural areas of our school district, their unique needs, and is open to communications and suggestions for the area, such as myself. Mesquite can also support our efforts, along with the Superintendent, to represent rural areas in performance zones and advisory committees.
2. If elected, what is your first priority project?
My top priority is to continue supporting our teachers and administrators through professional development and keeping resources focused on students in the classroom. I will also continue fighting for common sense education reform and improving student achievement so our children are prepared to be competitive in a global economy.
Rose Moore, the other candidate for this position, did not return responses to the League of Women Voters of Mesquite.
