What Inspires Vedna to Do This?

Building a Stronger School Community!

“Determine that the thing can and shall be done and then… find the way.” — Abraham Lincoln I am running for the Plymouth School Committee because I believe in the importance of a quality public education for everyone. While Plymouth does have a great school system with many resources, we can work on creating a better partnership between parents, students, educators and the district. Where effective communication and transparency allow for a seamless avenue for students and parents to take advantage of learning options that are available. I want to be conduit for parents, educators and the community, along with the school committee, to encourage the questions and conversations that promote engagement. I will work with educators to learn what additional resources are needed to support them and further promote a successful learning environment in their classrooms. I believe in the whole child. Not just graduating kids who are academically robust, but emotionally and socially sound. Who are civic-minded and globally aware citizens. I will assist the School Committee in achieving their goals as outlined in their Strategic Plan Initiative and work on a plan to improve on our drop rates affecting our economically disadvantaged children, those with learning disabilities and English second language learners. Public schools are the foundation of our communities. They are the creators of leaders, innovators, civic-minded individuals and our citizens. By partnering with parents, students and educators we can provide our children with best opportunity at an education that only strengthens them but improves the world around us. Advocacy. Transparency. Partnership

A promising and committed candidate.

Heywood said her connection to Parkland, Florida, her work with gun violence victims in the hospital and her son’s imminent entry into local schools combine to make her a strong advocate for school safety.

She also describes herself as an advocate for the under-served – the economically disadvantaged, children who are disabled and English language learners.
