A School Board
Candidate for Everyone

I’m running to make our school district a safe and welcoming environment for every student. Education is important and each child deserves access to all the opportunities GPPSS has to offer!

What’s Important?

I am dedicated to ensuring that our district continues to have excellent teachers, involved parents, and a responsive board and administration.

Focused on our:
Excellent Teachers

GPPSS teachers consistently receive some of the highest ratings in the state. I want to ensure that we retain our best teachers and continue to recruit quality candidates.

Focused on our:
Involved Parents

One of the strengths of GPPSS is our parental involvement. I want to encourage volunteer opportunities in the schools, and promote community engagement at every level.

Focused on our:
Responsive Board & Administration

Grosse Pointe has an active community that cares deeply for our students, and we need a school board that will respond to inquiries. Administration needs to be held to high standards, just like our teachers and staff.
