School Committee candidate has years of education experience in Westborough
To the editor:
My name is Lisa Edinberg. I am a candidate for one of the two open seats for the Westborough School Committee. During these challenging times, it is imperative to make informed decisions regarding your vote in the Westborough Town Election March 7 at the High School.
In looking forward to the next three years, I want to ensure that we maintain a quality education while evolving with the changing needs of our students.
- Prioritize 21st century skills
- Manage the impact of population growth
- Ensure optimal class sizes
- Foster lifelong learning
- Support fine arts, athletics, and special needs programs
As a taxpayer, I understand the importance of balancing the needs of our schools, with the broader needs of our town, and our town budget.
In facing these challenges and objectives, I offer a unique perspective and set of experiences to the role of School Committee member. I bring nine years of classroom teaching experience, eight of them in Westborough at Gibbons Middle School. I left teaching to attain my MBA cum laude from the F.W. Olin School of Business at Babson College with a focus on entrepreneurship. I founded a business strategy consulting firm for small and midsize businesses and ran a successful online sales business offering niche craft products to customers throughout the U.S.
In addition to my roles as an educator and entrepreneur, I have been actively involved in supporting our schools for nearly a decade. I have volunteered as a Math Olympiad teacher in various grade levels for eight years. I am past president and current treasurer of the Westborough Education Foundation, raising funds for innovative teacher grants. I served four years on the School Council at Fales Elementary, and currently serve on Mill Pond’s School Council.
With your support, and your vote on March 7, I hope to use my knowledge and experience to serve the children, faculty, staff, parents and community of the Westborough Public Schools.
Thank you for your support, and your vote.
