We need an educational expert who can set relevant policies based on the intellectual, social and physical needs of our schools. Currently, we have the eighth largest school district in the United States with almost 16,000 teachers and a growing budget of 3 billion dollars. I have been an educator for more than 26 years with experience in public and private schools as well as a home school organization. I have taught elementary, middle, high school, and vocational school students. Those experiences, plus being a department head and a team leader throughout, have given me first-hand knowledge of the specific needs and policies which will bring success to teachers and students.
I am also a small business owner of Take...The First Step, a teaching/coaching business for individuals wanting to become physically fit. Being a sole proprietor requires knowledge of the prioritizing of both expenditures and allocations. Planning a yearly budget was a key component of my business success.
Based on my experience, I have a vision for bringing about both educational effectiveness and quality for all students in our public schools.
Lynn Gray is running for the Hillsborough County School Board. It makes sense that those recommending Lynn for the School Board position are also related to education. Below are some of the endorsements Lynn has received by leading educators and advocates of education.
Tampa Bay Times - August 4, 2016 - statement
"Lynn Gray, a longtime teacher in Tampa-area public and private schools, has a firm grasp of educational issues and is rightly focused on the basics, from improving literacy in the younger grades to fostering more discipline in the classroom."
