Our Public Schools are institutions chartered by the people of our local and
greater communities for the purposes of imparting fundamental education for
our children towards life skills and critical thinking.
Our Public Schools are sanctioned by parents to reinforce their children with the
familial values of love, respect, integrity, and positive self-esteem, while providing
essential instruction in knowledge through which we speak, write, understand,
analyze, invent, communicate, and debate.

My commitment is to protect our children from special interest narratives,
which detract our focus from fundamental education, and to hold the Clover
Park Schools District accountable to the essentials of educating our children in
the development of language, math, science, civics, and the arts.
All children are unique individuals with lives to be guarded and nurtured.
