She has been a school administrator for 9 years and strongly advocates for students’ daily attendance, the traditional guiding principle of respect and parental involvement.

“Parental involvement is key to making our school a place where children feel safe, a place where they can learn and improve,” she said. “We need the support of parents in the school and to ensure that their children attend daily in a respectful manner, not only for themselves but for classmates and teachers. There is nothing as satisfying as seeing our children making progress in their academics, being respectful and heling one another. When we see that, it’s a tribute to parents, teachers and community.”
