Philosophy Statement

The future of our society depends greatly upon the quality of our educational system today. I am reminded each time as I greet one of our students, just how urgent our jobs are. Each day our wonderful teachers provide innovative, well planned lessons. I believe it is the job of our board to provide our schools with the best resources and facilities possible. All students within St. Clair County deserve equal, high quality instruction and facilities. Proudly, my job is to represent ALL of St. Clair County and that is what I strive to do.

Philosophy Statement

Our charge is not to run the schools but to see that they are run in an environment where the student is safe and structured. The Board of Education should be good stewards of money as well as accountable and accessible.
