Its main goal is to achieve college and career readiness for all our graduates. Based on this strategic plan, GCISD continues to promote personalized instruction, offering programs, such as Aspire, AVID, STEM, Arts Integration and many others, to meet the very diverse needs of our students. I want to con- tinue to work with the district’s administration to improve our programs while conservatively managing our tax dollars to achieve best-in- class status.

principal certification; served on campus improvement committee sites.google.com/site/ cacytischerforgcisdboard/home

financial committees; and service on nonprofit board for suicide prevention

on District of Excellent Committee, District of Innovation Committee and Council of PTA www.dougforgcisd.com I am running for re-election to the GCISD school board to ensure that the board of trustees continues to work in concert with district teachers, staff and students along with community members to advance innovative programs to educate students so they are prepared for college, military or career.

I am running for office to give back and serve, voluntarily, in the same community that shaped my morals [and] values and that has given so much to me. Additionally, I want to help in the decision-making process that will shape my children and GCISD students while serving the teachers and community.

From a very early age, I knew I wanted to make a difference in the community by becoming an educator. I have three children who currently attend GCISD, and as a mother and an educator, I want to bring a unique perspective to the school board. My goal is to use the fiscal resources to provide competitive teacher compensation and meet teachers’ needs in the classroom. My greatest privilege would be to serve the entire school district and advocate for the educators that have allowed my children to thrive.
