My father always told me, “If you’re not part of the solution, you’re part of the problem”. A simple and common phrase, but that does not make it any less true. When conflict arises in my life, I always first try to identify the problem. There is no fixing anything until first you know what you must fix. Seems simple right? Not always. You must be able to acknowledge your own fault at times, and this can be extremely difficult. I see it all too often. Nobody really wants to admit they are wrong, or they are the cause of the dilemma. Often, once the root cause it identified, the solution will present itself. The “fixing” comes easy.
Why run for the School Board?
- I have identified a problem and I don’t want to be a part of it any longer. I want to be the way to the solution.
- As a nation we are struggling with our identity. Our children are being thrown into the middle.
- I don’t have a background in education outside of achieving my own. I am not indoctrinated in the ways of school administration and I can still see issues from a parents perspective.
- Proverbs 22:6
