My promise is to partner with students, parents, staff, and community members to continue to shape District 11 into the premier destination of choice for Excellence in Education.  

I am committed to:

  • Providing opportunities and specific interventions to help every student grow, thrive, excel, and reach their full academic potential.
  • Fostering a welcoming, safe, and supportive environment where every student, parent, and staff member is valued, respected, and heard.
  • Promoting communication, transparency, and responsible stewardship of taxpayer’s dollars to build trust within the community.
  • Focusing on student-centered solutions.
  • Ensuring a culture of high expectations and accountability at all levels.


The ultimate obligation and goal of a school district to not just our students, but the taxpayers who fund their education is to ensure all students receive rich and rigorous educational experiences that prepares them for success after graduation.

To that end goal, I will work tirelessly to:

  • Invest D11’s limited financial resources closest to students in the classrooms.
  • Ensure every student has access to quality neighborhood schools.
  • Expand Mitchell Promise to ensure all D11 graduates have access to scholarship programs to attend a two-year college program at Pikes Peak State College free of cost.
  • Provide distinct academic pathways, comprehensive college credit opportunities, and increased industry certifications to students at significant cost-savings to families.
  • Support development of character skills such as self-advocacy, sense of belonging, self-management, and perseverance resulting in increased student attendance and decreased behavior issues in classrooms.


To elevate academic achievement and student outcomes, it is paramount to ensure delivery of ambitious instruction in every single classroom by highly effective teachers.

To that end goal, I will resolutely support:

  • Recognizing and rewarding our staff with competitive compensations.
  • Investing in the Professional Development of all our staff.
  • Ensuring through policy and governance that classrooms are safe, productive learning environments free from unnecessary disruptions.
  • Minimizing the bureaucratic requirements so the focus is on teaching and learning.
  • Developing a supportive work culture where staff are valued, honored, and celebrated.


Parents/guardians are essential partners in their child’s education, and parental involvement is the catalyst for improving student academic growth and achievement.

To that end goal, I will strongly advocate for:

  • Parental voice and choice to choose the best educational option for their child.
  • Prioritizing student safety in secure and supportive schools.
  • Promoting full transparency and family engagement in decisions regarding the overall well-being, educational progress, and academic growth of their child.
  • Ensuring impartial learning environments free of radical ideologies.
  • Encouraging parent and community participation in classrooms and school activities.
