"No one has yet fully realized the wealth of sympathy, kindness and generosity hidden in the soul of a child. The effort of every true education should be to unlock that treasure." ~ Emma Goldman, author 

My Goal And Vision

Pontiac Schools are poised to recover from its consent agreement and once again become a premier school district. These attributes make Pontiac a global community of the future. Pontiac will continue to contribute to initiatives such as SEMCOG, SmartZones, and Automation Alley.

I believe that I can be an effective conduit utilizing my vast experience on the school board will assist in the District's recovery.  I know Pontiac School District is ready to become an active partner in this recovery!

I have three projects to bring opportunities to our children in Pontiac School District.  Here is a brief description of each project:

•    I am currently working with Superintendent Kelley Williams doing a feasibility study that would re-introduce vocational courses in grades six through twelve.  These courses would be a bridge program that would prepare students for apprenticeship opportunities with building and construction trades.

•    I am currently working with the Michigan Democratic Party to offer internship opportunities in government programs to all students independent of their political affiliation.  Civics would give our student a unique opportunity to engage in the political process while in school.

•    I am currently working with Principal Burdena Johnson and Bishop William H. Murphy Jr. to develop an on-site etiquette mentoring program for our high school students.
