Why I Am Running for My Local School Board

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with Beam & Branch Realty TREC #547752

 

GISD School Board

 

Recently, I stepped forward in faith and filed for an open local school board seat. Many have asked me why I felt compelled to do this. Trust me, I have thought long and hard and know that I have made a well-thought-out decision.

 

My reasons are numerous for running for this position.

 

  1. I love my community and know this is how I can serve the students, teachers, and families in our area.
  2. I moved back to my hometown of Granbury, Texas four years ago. This is a community where I received my Jr. High and High School education!
  3. Granbury ISD prepared me very well for life after high school.
  4. Before my real estate career 16 years ago, I was a high school Biology teacher. I have first-hand experience in the classroom teaching a core subject.
  5. I have a child in this school district who just entered the 3rd grade. He will have many years in our schools.
  6. Our local schools are our most important community assets.
  7. All children deserve the best education possible.
  8. I have continued to strive for higher education in my own life. I believe we should all continue to learn as long as we can. A solid early education is critical in order to develop a love of learning. 
  9. Schools provide children with life-skills needed as they grow up.
  10. Teachers deserve respect and recognition for the important jobs they are doing.

 

I am honored to be able to have the opportunity to give back. I am running for the open seat position 7. The election is on November 3, 2020.

 

I am prepared and ready to serve on the Granbury Independent School District School Board. For those who live in our school district, I humbly ask for your vote! Blessings and thank you.

speaking to a school board is difficult but sometimes necessary to improve the environment for your child. if you do not want your child to buy homework from professional services ✏️  and do them yourself, then you should improve the level of education provided to your child.
