I wanted to take this opportunity to tell you a little more about myself as a candidate for Mechanicsburg Area School District Region 2 School Director. You can also visit my website, www.meghanhbrown.com, to learn more about my background.
I have been involved in the school district since my children started attending in kindergarten. I currently serve as on the Shepherdstown/ Upper Allen Elementary PTO, the Middle School PTO and the MASD PTO Governing Board. In addition, I have served on hiring committees within the district and am currently serving on the Vision Committee for MMS.
I volunteer in the school weekly and serve as a substitute teacher as needed. Because of all of this, I have first-hand experience interacting with children in the school environment; I am aware of the experiences students are facing both educationally and socially; I understand how education has changed in today’s world; and I understand the importance of all extracurricular activities.
I truly believe that educating children is our community’s No. 1 responsibility. If elected I want to show the community that developing compassionate and successful learners does not have to come at the cost of the taxpayer. These two things are not mutually exclusive and the education system and community are working toward the same goal. I want our community members to be as proud of our students as I am on a daily basis.
I understand the issues that are facing the students, teachers, and administrators and I will use all of this information when making decisions that impact our students and neighborhoods. I promise that I will not only stay informed myself but make sure I am providing as much information as possible to my constituents including the reasoning for my decisions.
