Why School Board?

ImageI have almost 20 years of teaching experience at the college level; I am an instructional designer and currently Coordinate a 3-person team designing and evaluating online courses; I am the mother of 3 children (10, 13, and 2), have an MA in Literature, an MS in Education Technology, and I’m working on an Ed. S. in Education Technology with a focus on Distance Education Program Management and an emphasis on ADA compliance in technology-enhanced instructional design. 

I hope very much that I will be able to bring my experience and knowledge to the district in effective ways. I have always had a good working relationship with the teachers and administrators I have come into contact with, and as one of my boys has special needs, I have had a lot of contact with both – some encounters more friendly than others, but always ending on a positive note with some amount of progress being made. I would like nothing more than to use my insights as the mother of a special needs child and a young teenager, my skills and knowledge as a teacher and as an Instructional Designer and Instructional Technologist, and my energy and dedication to make our Warrensburg schools even better than they already are.
