“I AM AN ADVOCATE FOR OUR SCHOOLS, STUDENTS, AND TEACHERS.” – SHELLY LAURENZO
It’s vital to invest in our schools and support the mission of quality education and resources for all. Having already served on the School Board for over a year, I have a solid understanding of what needs to be done and am dedicated to achieving our goals.
SUPPORTING EDUCATIONAL SUCCESS
Advocate for our teachers: Teachers do their best every day to support a quality education for our students. I will advocate on their behalf locally and at a state level.
Advocate for our students: As a school board member I have continued to support efforts which in turn support student success. I intentionally use the term student success because it is important for us to think of our students holistically. While student achievement and test scores are one type of measure, we need to remember that it is not the only indicator of success.
Getting students involved: It is my mission to create a role for student representation on the Waynesboro school board, an endeavor I’ve already started in my current term. Student feedback is an important part of our school system’s future success.
AN EXPERIENCED LEADER
Board experience: I’m just getting started. Having served for a year, I have a solid understanding of the school board member role and have demonstrated my advocacy for our schools, faculty, and students.
Educational expertise: As a professional in higher education, I have experience supporting student success and preparing them for educational and career achievements. I know how to collaborate with administration, understand policies and theories of education, and know the K-12 process.
Awareness: I live and raise my family in Waynesboro. This vibrant community needs dedication and experience to further the goals of its parents, teachers, students, and residents.
Support: I support creating an educational facility worthy of our students and teachers. Creating lifelong learners in a new, accessible space for high-quality learning is important to the Waynesboro community.
