As promised, a post with less drama. I felt it was important to articulate where I stand on what I see as 3 key issues in this election.
1) Building on the Bancroft Property
I’M FOR IT!
This is a HUGE opportunity for our community. It’s our chance to set Haddonfield schools up to excel for the next decade. But to get it right, we need the entire community engaged.
If we don’t act, we’re eventually going to have classes taught in trailers and dozens of kids told they can’t participate in sports. And that’s the last thing we want.
I’d like everyone to feel invested in the direction we choose – and together we move forward as one Haddonfield.
2) Banning Books and Censoring Curriculum
I’M AGAINST IT!
I’m in favor of a diverse curriculum that presents a range of views and perspectives. I’m also in favor of treating our teachers like the professionals they are and trusting them to lead the vibrant discussions that have produced a district that is among the best in the nation.
My kids have benefitted from an amazing Haddonfield education and I’m fighting to keep the quality of our curriculum from being compromised for the next generation of kids.
3) The increase in HIB incidents
I’LL WORK TO PUT AN END TO IT!
HIB (Harassment/Intimidation/Bullying) has spiked dramatically since we’ve returned from remote learning. This needs to be the top priority of our administrators.
I will give it my full attention to ensure that Haddonfield schools are a model of inclusivity. We need to come together and build a school system which recognizes that all of our students are worthy of acceptance, worthy of empathy, and worthy of an outstanding education.
