This letter is to formally announce my intention to run for a position on the Washington Science Olympiad Board of Directors.
My first career was in the construction industry. In the business world, the ethic is that if you’re not moving forward, then you’re falling back. I believe we need to focus on two realms in order to grow Science Olympiad. One is pursuing corporate sponsors, especially those who can support us with technology as well as money. Secondly, we need to spark the interest of elementary students so they will want to experience Science Olympiad when they get to secondary school.
My qualifications include:
Teaching for 15 years, at middle school and elementary level.
Coaching the Jason Lee M.S. Science Olympiad team for 8 years
Doubled the size of our program two years ago. Jason Lee teams have qualified for the State Tournament for the last seven years.
Have established Science Olympiad programs at three nearby elementary schools. The Jason Lee Varsity and JV teams have sponsored and managed events at each Elementary Tournament.
Presently serve on the S.W. Regional Science Olympiad Board of Directors
