The students in our schools are our future. As a. community we have a responsibility to ensure our students are equipped with the tools to lead us successfully into the future. We are in an unprecedented time. Now more than ever it is vital that the delivery of education be approached with innovation and creativity while protecting the integrity of our classrooms and supporting our teachers. Cave Creek has prided itself on being among the top districts in Maricopa County. I believe our district should be the top district in the state. I remain committed to the principle: excellence in the classroom begins with excellence in the board room.
