Questions and responses are taken from the 15th District PTA Website, where you can also find information about the candidates on the slate, the election and how to become a delegate.

What PTA positions have you held in the past and what PTA/PTSA are currently a member of?

I was previously the VP of Membership on the board of Whitney Young’s PTA and the secretary of Coleridge-Taylor’s PTA.

What prompted you to seek this position?

I believe that just as our schools should represent our diverse population, so should our PTA’s. I want to ensure that our children and families have the best possible opportunities available.

What about the position excites you and why do you want to join the 15th District PTA Board?

What excites me about possibly joining the 15th District PTA Board is to be able to work with a multitude of schools and finding out what they need and how we can partner with them to achieve their goals.

Will you be comfortable being an ambassador or advocate for our association and our mission which includes National PTA Resolutions and Position Statements? If so what makes you passionate about our association?

I am passionate about the PTA because I see it as a way to truly partner with your child’s school to ensure that the needs that the school does not meet, we could fill that gap. Joining a board requires working as part of a team.

How would you describe your ability to work on a team? The role you think you will play as part of this team?

I enjoy working with a group of people toward a common goal. I feel that the more brains you have looking at a problem the better the solution will be. I look forward to bouncing ideas off other people and learning from them. The role that I will play on this team is being an advocate for what best for our children and our schools.

A 15th District PTA Board position is an important commitment. Are you able to give the time necessary to fulfill this role and to attend all PTA board meetings and events?

I am fully committed to fulfilling this position and attending all PTA board meetings and events.
