How it all started a year ago today….

August 3, 2020 ~ My first communication to Dr. Scanlon and the sitting members of the WCASD board regarding the pending vote on the WCASD 2020-2021 reopening plan, originally set for a HYBRID return changed at the last minute by Dr. Scanlon to a recommendation for FULL REMOTE.

June 28th WCASD School Board Meeting and Public Discussion on Critical Race Theory

This past Monday evening, June 28th, was a historical moment in the history of our school district. Not only was it the first standing room only in-person meeting in over a year, we had a plethora of public input via public comment on non-agenda items. Specifically, there was a constructive exchange of points of viewContinue reading “June 28th WCASD School Board Meeting and Public Discussion on Critical Race Theory”

Part 2: Equity Question from a Constituent…

As a follow up to Monday’s post “Equity Question from a Constituent” there were some additional questions, and I wanted to share my response to them at the bottom of this blog post.

Parent rights… Student rights… Community rights… and how my opponents feel about them?

I want to start this post first by saying that when I started my advocacy last summer, it has always been with the inclusion of ALL students and their needs.

Equity Question from a Constituent…

Earlier this week I received an email from a constituent that I think touches on really important considerations for our community and our upcoming general election for School Director.

The focus ofContinue reading “Equity Question from a Constituent…”

Thank you everyone for being patient these past few weeks as we all took time to rest and recharge after a busy primary campaign season.

Humbled…

By the incredible show of support this past Tuesday as we hit the polls to make our collective voices heard! And boy oh boy…the voters definitely showed up! It gives me great joy to say that pending a final confirmation (as Chester County experienced some hiccups with the ballot count) it appears that we haveContinue reading “Humbled…”

The blessing of being Seen and Heard…

I’ve talked often during my campaign about the impacts of remote learning on women, and how it has put working mothers behind the equity curve even further than before. One of the greatest gifts during this campaign has been the network of parents I have met through my affiliation with the Keeping Kids in SchoolContinue reading “The blessing of being Seen and Heard…”

Just four more days until we plant the seeds for the next four years!

Last week when I had the chance to hear Mr. Robert Woodson speak, I was incredibly moved by how he spoke of needing to plant the seeds before you try to harvest the crop. This may seem obvious but his point was that in today’s society, too often we are looking only at the harvest…theContinue reading “Just four more days until we plant the seeds for the next four years!”
