I just realized that at some point FB did away with my ABOUT writeup.
🙄 Since I’ve gotten a lot of new followers of late, I thought I better post something for all those who may not know how I fit in here (and judging by some of my PMs, it’s necessary).

🔹I am NOT a member of the Loudoun County School Board. Any opinions I express here are my own and do not represent LCPS in any way.

🔹I *was* a School Board candidate in 2019. I ran for the At-Large seat now held by Denise Corbo. I am the parent of two now-graduates of LCPS and was a long-time volunteer and advocate in their schools.

🔹When the election was over, my interest in service never waned, so I decided to switch from a campaign page to an information page. My goals were to:

▪️ Continue to share what the School Board was up to, including topics being raised in Committees, so that parents weren’t blindsided;

▪️ Teach parents: how the SB works, how to find information, how to engage, and how to advocate;

▪️ Impress upon the community that these LOCAL elections matter!
Then COVID happened and accomplished these better than I ever could. 💥

🔹Since I am not an elected official, I am not bound by the same rules when it comes to social media communication. I can hide comments, delete posts, or block followers. And although many have encouraged me to do just that over the years, I can’t recall ever doing so. I certainly don’t agree with every comment made on my posts, and it does get messy at times, but I’m not a fan of censorship. There’s too much of that nowadays.

🔹Think of me as a reporter of sorts. I post now and then on what the Committees are up to. I give a play-by-play of the full SB meetings. Sometimes I share other news and school-related stuff. I try to keep my opinions to myself (semi-successfully) because who cares what I think anyway? 🤷‍♀️

As I said once before, I’ll continue doing what I’m doing until I feel called in another direction. Or until no one’s listening anymore. Whichever comes first.

Sláinte.
