I have a strong understanding of the current strengths, issues and challenges facing the Portsmouth School system. Over the past ten years, I have played a leadership role in the Parent Teacher Organizations at Melville Elementary and then the Middle School. I have served on multiple school related committees. Currently, I have two children attending PHS. I want the voters of Portsmouth to know that I am committed to a high performing school system in Portsmouth. I firmly believe that this can be done while ensuring that the interests of all stakeholdersâ€”students, families, taxpayers, teachers and staffâ€”are taken in to account.
