Board Member Elect


"I stand with one purpose and focus...the children.  My platform is based on honor, integrity and pride for the Mayfield Central School District.  I am a progressive visionary.  I look forward to collaborating with the community in order to ensure transparency within our district.  Our children's education is paramount, and this needs to be the number one focus in decision making.  My family and I have been residents in the district for the last two years, and in that time, I have done my best to be an active member of the community.  This is my second year as a member of the PTA, a group in which I have participated with enthusiasm as a way to provide nothing but our best for students and teachers.  I have volunteered to assist with the book fair, was co-chairperson of the Halloween Event for grades PreK-4 last October, and was a member of the committee for the Luck To Have You Event in March.  I have also served on external committees within the district including the Smart School's Committee and the SPARRK Committee.  I have a daughter, Abbey, who is currently in first grade at MES, and I want to ensure that she and all of the students have nothing but the best to look forward to as they all have bright futures ahead of them.  If elected, my efforts will be to listen to students, parents, teachers and the public, study data and put in place best practices to ensure that every student leaves our schools well-prepared for the next stage in life.  I believe that Mayfield CSD is an excellent place for our children to attend school, and that is why my husband and I worked so hard to move into the district.  That being said, there is always room for improvement.  I want to be a part of transforming this district into a high-achieving one of which we all can be proud.  Improving schools is a long-term, strenuous process and I am in it for the long haul.  I am positive and optimistic about our students' futures and the future of this district.  I welcome your thoughts and concerns at any time.  If you'd like to ask me questions or just get to know me better, please, do not hesitate to email me at"
