Reason for running: As a native Liberty countian and product of its school system, I have first-hand knowledge of what our schools have done and can continue to do for children in our community. I want to be a part of ensuring that the system’s tradition of producing thoughtful, productive, and prepared graduates is maintained.
Platform: “Putting Students F.I.R.S.T” — Focusing on student achievement; Investing in student learning and personal growth; Reinforcing a culture of quality and excellence for new and existing system employees; Showcasing alumni success; Teaming with fellow board members to foster the vision and goals of the LCSS.

Top three priorities: Student learning (promoting policies that ensure students’ balanced knowledge of technology and of content areas); Employee advocacy (ensuring that all system employees are given necessary training and tools to better serve students); Alumni achievement (highlighting success of system graduates to inspire students and reassure stakeholders)
Background: HS (Liberty County High-2000); BA (Spelman College-2004); PhD (Emory University-2010); tenured associate professor of English at Savannah State University; married mother of one daughter.
