For 15 years I have committed countless hours as a parent trying to improve public education. I’ve run bake sales, edited parent newsletters, helped found a city-wide school advocacy organization (Manchester Coalition for Quality Education), served on DINI (District In Need of Improvement ) committees, read every major school reform report issued in the last ten years, and met with hundreds of parents, teachers, and community members to talk about the state of our public school system.

My most recent project has been the establishment of the Manchester Foundation for Education, an independent community non-profit organization founded to strengthen public education by engaging community members as partners in the pursuit of educational excellence. Our goals are to benefit public education by fostering partnerships, supporting beneficial education practices and building the capacity of all stakeholders to meet the challenges our school system faces.
