In response to the nomination form question, “Why I wish to serve in this position and what I hope to accomplish?”
“I would like to continue serving as a Sectional Advisor because I have enjoyed providing boots-on-the-ground support to school board members in my service area. School directors sometimes turn to their colleagues to help them navigate and access the many services and supports that PSBA has to offer. I feel fortunate to have been a Sectional Advisor to learn from and help my school board neighbors, as well as connect them to the corresponding PSBA staff and leaders to obtain whatever it is that they are seeking. I hope these joint efforts have resulted in stronger member satisfaction and engagement, and I believe there is even more potential to be realized. End user feedback is important and helpful, and I appreciate when colleagues reach out to ask questions and share perspectives. It is a privilege to be this resource for my colleagues as PSBA helps us grow as school directors and we advocate together for well funded public education and the crucial supports our students need for success. PSBA is always planning new membership initiatives in support of public education, and I look forward to working with PSBA staff and school directors on those efforts as well.”
