What inspired you to join the CRMS Board of Trustees? As a parent of a current student (and a future student), I’m inspired by the joy I see in my daughter as she goes to school every day. To be motivated and challenged by her teachers to do her best and have so much fun doing it, motivates me to volunteer my time and be more engaged. I’m looking forward to working with the Board of Trustees to create more possibilities for other students to find their joy in our school. CRMS supports all students to find their passion and grow at their own speed, in their own way. The school offers many diverse outlets that help facilitate each individual’s joy of learning.
What do you value most about CRMS? I value the strong faculty, teacher and peer relationships that are formed at CRMS through intimate and engaging classroom and outdoor settings. The school size allows for one-on-one time and a more detailed and exciting approach to learning. With the wide range of opportunities the students have from the Active program, gardening, arts, and outdoor education trips, they bond very quickly with their teachers and peers. It was thrilling to have our daughter find her place in the CRMS community so quickly – and love it!
What are you most excited about while serving as a Trustee? I’m excited to work with the Development team on future campus goals and fundraising. As a CRMS Trustee, I look forward to sharing our family’s experience of why CRMS is different and special with interested families. This will be a highlight of my time on the Board.
