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.

  1. Kathy has always been a positive influence in my life and the life of my family. She is the God mother of my four children (12, 9, 5 and 3) and as a mother of a special needs child has been very inspiring. Her dedication to her family plus juggling all her other responsibilities I have known her to be very organized and efficient in whatever she does. Even though Kathy has a very busy schedule she always puts her family first. I have known Kathy to sacrifice her own needs many times for her family and friends. She is trust-worthy, kind and just the person we need to help continue the good work our school district is doing. She is a team player and is ready to be not only a school board member but a friend to those in need.

    As a mother (hers) you always want you kids to do the best they can and to have a great life. As Kathy’s mother, let me tell you she has gone so much farther than her father and I ever dreamed of. The challanges she has faced and over come in her life are many that few could ever dream of. Her ability to always have a smile, understanding and determination seems to grow every day. I also will tell you when Kathy takes on a project, problem or just a get together she will fullfill it like no other and you will not hear a complaint of any kind. She lost her father in 2002 but let me tell you He is one very very proud father.

Please tell me what you think!
