Thank You to All My Supporters!

 Former colleague Jahnnette graciously allowed me to put a sign in her yard.

 Retired JISD counselor Christy is backing me and I've got the golden retriever vote, too! Thanks, Boomer and Oakley!

Former student Conley was kind enough to pose with me. Thanks, Conley!

Dear friend and Judson teacher Daliene is knocking on doors and asking people to vote for me. I really appreciate all your help, Daliene!

Retired JISD teacher and former colleague Diane allowed me to put a sign in her yard. Thanks so much, Diane!

Retired JISD teacher Liz and her husband asked for a sign for their yard. Fun fact: Liz and I went to high school together and met up again years later when we were both doing 6 Traits of Writing training for Judson teachers!

The bond issue to complete Veterans Memorial High School will be on the ballot May 6, along with the school board election. JISD is holding 2 forums to answer any questions you might have regarding the bond. There will be one at Kitty Hawk Middle School on Wednesday, March 22 at 6:00 and another on Wednesday, March 29 at 6:30 at Veterans Memorial High School. I plan to attend both. Please come say hello if you attend!

I Need Your Help

The response to my candidacy for school board has been amazing. I am so grateful for all of you who think I would do a good job at working for our kids.

Now comes the hard part - asking for your help.

I expect to have at least one opponent in this race. That means I will need to do a good deal of campaigning, and that costs money.

It's very difficult for me to ask for money. But my teacher retirement pay only goes so far. Signs, fliers, stationery - they all cost money.

Will you help?
