Thank you, Westfield, for allowing me to serve on the Board of Education since 2006. As a 26-year resident and a mom, of soon-to-be five Westfield school graduates, I have been honored to work alongside the most dedicated and hardworking people of our community. I have said it many times before and I'll say it again, we are so fortunate to live in a community that cares so deeply about its children and their education.
I am filled with mixed emotions as I declare that I will not be seeking another term on the Westfield Board of Education. I promise to dedicate my time and energy over the next seven months to the Board's current goals and objectives. However, next year, with our fifth child heading off to college, I will be increasing my career responsibilities.
As an educator, I spend every day guiding children, making inquiries, exploring new concepts and ideas and hopefully instilling in them a love of learning. How lucky I feel to passionately love what I do! I hope that I have made a positive impact on the district. I know that it has had one on me. Every person working in this District has one objective, to maintain and raise the quality of education for our children. I thank all of them for their continued hard work and I again thank the community for giving me an opportunity to serve you.
