As a teacher and mother I am devoted to ensuring that children have access to an education that will set them up for a life of choices and opportunity. I’ve taught in the classroom as an elementary school teacher, recruited and coached teachers, and helped manage an education non-profit focused on advancing student results. I am running for the Alexandria School Board for the privilege to represent you and the other families in District A and work towards the goal of providing an excellent education for all Alexandria students together.
When measuring success, it’s not how much you spend—it’s how you spend it. I know how decisions are made and implemented at the school and system level, and have seen firsthand the importance of close community collaboration and the power of effective teachers and administrators. Alexandria’s students deserve leaders – whether in the classroom or in the superintendent’s office – who have extremely high expectations and include parents and families as partners in the pursuit of results.
Like many of you, my husband and I want to send our daughter, Cora, to our neighborhood public schools and to sleep well at night knowing that she is receiving the education that she deserves. I am asking for your support on November 6th so that I can represent you and your children on the Alexandria School Board.
If you have ideas for how we can strengthen Alexandria City Public Schools, or have questions about my candidacy, please reach out to me at Stephanieforschoolboard@gmail.com.
All my best,
