“As a university professor my philosophy in education is to have the determination and commitment to provide high quality education through a challenging curriculum that emphasizes a critical and creative thinking/learning environment in which all students can excel.“

Learning Through the Arts
"Because Music and Art is more than a test score"

It has been evaluated and stated that academically strong schools tend to have strong Arts programs, and that families who value academic achievement also value achievement in the arts.

With "No Child Left Behind" policy emphasizing performance based on test scores, keeping the Arts in public school has been subject to a national debate. In addition, with current budgetary constraints, arts education is often discarded from school curriculum.

Irrespective of which side of the debate you agree with, there is strong evidence that the Arts are vital to student learning. It has often been stated that learning the Arts promotes the idea that there is more than one solution to a problem or more than one answer to a question because it allows students the opportunity to envision, persist, justify, learn from mistakes and make critical judgments.

As your school board member, I will continue to be a strong advocate for Arts education in schools.
