Support for Tina Riehle for Stillwater Area School Board

I am writing in support of Tina Riehle for Stillwater Area School Board. I have known Tina for roughly three years. In that time, I have come to believe that Tina is truly one of the best candidates for school board. Tina is a woman of integrity. Her strong moral principles are exactly what are needed on our school board to help lead our district into the future. If Tina says she will look into something, she will. I have never doubted that Tinas drive to be on the school board comes from a place of the deepest care, concern and desire to improve the culture of our schools for the betterment of our children and our teachers.

Tina is highly motivated and has been fiercely dedicated to educating herself on district issues. She has spent countless hours attending board business meetings, board trainings, looking over district finances, speaking to staff, administrators, and community members. Tina has an excellent grasp of the issues at hand, and is ready to dig in and do the hard work of driving Stillwater Schools to the be the best they can be.

Lastly, and most importantly to me, is that Tina is about community and relationship to each other. Tina has proposed the creation of a mentorship program as well as pushed for more community involvement through volunteering. By integrating concepts such as these into our schools, not only will our children feel safe, valued and connected to their community, but also, our teachers will feel better supported to continue doing the amazing work of reaching each and every child in their classroom.

As a parent of two children in the district, Tina is who I want advocating for my children. Please take the time to reach out to Tina to share your views, and hear hers. It will be time well spent.
