Hembree Springs SGC Candidate Statements (Spring 2017)
1. Lucy Gilbert (firstname.lastname@example.org)
|Our school needs strong leaders who care about all of our students. If elected, I would look to speak for our community of parents as a whole and would seek out input from every family. I would also look for ways that we can continue to support our staff and teachers. While our children's needs are diverse, our goals are the same- a happy, healthy school environment where our children are growing and learning. My educational background includes a BA in Spanish as well as graduate coursework in communications. My career as an event planner often required me to resolve issues and facilitate relationships in a positive manner. All towards a common goal. I am also an involved parent within our school. I attend most of our Katha Stewart community meetings as well as being a member of the Hembree Springs PTA board, Kindergarten grade level chair and a room parent (pre-K and K). I care about our students, school and community and would love the opportunity to serve all of you on the Student Governance Council.|

"I firmly believe that the schools that our children attend are fundamental in preparing them for their lives as responsible contributors to our community. I believe that our schools need to be grounded in educating students on the fundamentals of academics, but that they must also provide students with the skills that will differentiate them as they move forward, including leadership, change management, and responsible citizenry.
By way of history, I grew up in a small rural town in NY, the daughter of 2 immigrants who spoke only basic English when they moved to the US. My parents worked hard and ensured that we understood that education was our ticket in life. We took education very seriously, and it paid off. I spent my career working for 3 companies, and had the opportunity to travel the world at work. I earned a degree in Computer Science, but used that degree to take on several leadership positions in Finance, Customer Service, Auditing, and of course Information Technology. My biggest takeaway from my education is that the key skills that pay off in the long run are the ability to change, lead, and see opportunities for improvement. I want to serve on the SGC in order to ensure that we apply the ability to change, lead, and see opportunities for improvement both in our interactions with our students and in the way Hembree Springs approaches its own strategic planning."

|I have been teaching at Hembree Springs for three years, and I have quickly learned to call it my home. Colleagues have turned into family, and students have become near and dear to my heart. Teaching at Hembree inspired me to complete my Masters Degree in December of 2016. I am also a member of Fulton County's Vanguard team and our school's personalized learning team. It would be an honor to serve Hembree teachers, staff, students, and parents by being a member of the School Governance Council. I am committed to keeping Hembree Springs a wonderful place to work and go to school. Even though I have been here for a short time, I intend to work diligently to keep Hembree a school for high performance, dedication, and appreciation for all.|
