Her children and grandchildren have attended district schools where they received an excellent education.

She has been involved with the Friends of the Library monthly meetings and preparing and selling at the book sales for years. Barbara started going to monthly Council and School Board meetings to decide how she wanted to vote. That led to monthly Curriculum, Operations and Finance meetings and yearly Budget meetings for over fifteen years. She became a Board member in 2017 and won a four-year return in 2019. She is so proud of the district’s STEAM program, Project Lead the Way, Truman Drama, Debate, sports, and special education. The district has so much to offer, you just have to accept it.

 “My children are my greatest achievement, and this is why I accepted the appointment to the Bristol Township School Board in Sept of 2016. I am proud to be part of this important decision making process. I appreciate the opportunity to continue to add ideas, insight, and suggestions that will improve and enhance our district, not only for my children, but for all of our children. I believe it is our responsibility to give our children the best education and resources possible.

As a member of the School Board, my goals are to bridge a gap between our schools, community and the School Board. It is imperative that we work together, listen to each other, and build communication. I will work to keep costs and spending down to keep taxes from going up. And also ensure that the many programs that our district provides, that greatly benefit our students, remain intact.”
