Candidate Statement

Shari Megaw, Teacher                                 Age 47


Through our schools, we build our future.  However, our schools must have the right tools to do the job.  As your school board member, I will continue to maintain fiscal responsibility and promote policies which remove obstacles to student achievement.  I will work in partnership with parents, teachers and school staff to get schools the tools they need to give the students the skills needed.  This means having safe, healthy classrooms with the technology needed for modern learning.  It means having students who know there will be zero tolerance for unacceptable behavior, and it means supporting programs, which help kids stay on the right track. 


I am a local math and science educator, and have a strong connection to the community that has led me to want to serve another four years as a board member. Being from a family of educators, I have the experience in knowing what is needed.  Education is my life, and I ask for your vote.
