Misty Mills currently has two children at Cave Spring Elementary. One in the 5th grade and one in 3rd grade. She was secretary of the PTO for the past two years. She is very involved in the school and would love the opportunity to serve on the Governance Team. Mills wrote in her application, "I believe parent involvement is a key to our children’s education."
Michelle is a parent of two children at Cave Spring Elementary. She wrote in her application, "I feel the Local School Governance Team provides the perfect opportunity to become more involved in this crucial time in their lives. I have been very pleased so far with the level of education provided at Cave Spring, but like most parents, would like to take on a more active role." Michelle is currently a stay-at-home mom. She also wrote, "For the first time in my children’s lives I am in a position to take on a more hands-on role in their education. I look forward to hopefully adding something to the dialogue of the meetings."
I have a passion for education and believe that it is important to help ensure that all children receive a quality education. In order to achieve that, it is essential to have a partnership between our teachers, administrators and parents.
This partnership can help drive continuous performance in our schools while reinforcing the tools and ideas that will support our children on their journey to graduation: training and support for teachers, tools and support for parents, as well as innovation and technology in the classroom.
My husband and I are parents to two daughters (rising eighth graders at Pepperell Middle School) and to one son (rising third grader at Pepperell Elementary School). I am a marketing and communications professional with over 20 years’ experience and have held positions with companies ranging from a museum, to a fund-raising event based organization, to a community center that housed a preschool, after school programs, summer camps, senior center and fitness centers. I have taught and mentored children in various grades for religious education programs, volunteered in Girl Scouts, served in numerous classes as class mom and volunteer, as well as home-schooled my children. Currently I am a Cub Scout Den Leader with Pack 1.
I would welcome the opportunity to serve on the Local School Governance Team and work with our parents, teachers and administrators to ensure our commitment to our children continues.
