As a current Keizer/Salem parent I am committed to bettering my community. As a graduate of McKay High School, and a current parent of a Keizer area Junior, 7th grader and 5th grader I am invested in the daily needs and opportunities our students face and deserve. As an active community volunteer, I feel the present need for support.

I want to bring the voice of my fellow parents and our current educators to the forefront, highlight their challenges and work towards solutions; and shout their successes and praise a community committed to every child’s successes.


More Classroom Control for Teachers

We need to allow our educators the opportunity to guide their students in their classrooms as the individuals they are. No more “one size fits all” structures. Teachers are the greatest advocates for their personal styles and approaches to engage students to success.

Use Local Resources to Enhance Opportunities

Keizer and Salem are communities that want to invest in their future. Engaging students with more real life opportunities will create an environment they can have greater ownership over, ownership builds pride and loyalty; two values necessary to be a successful adult.

Present Leadership

Keizer needs a leader who is present, active and engaged. Our community deserves to have a voice at the table. A voice that appreciates the current challenges and successes of being a parent and student in our current educational climate.
