My name is Betsy Farner, and I am a candidate for School Board, District 4. As a teacher for 37 years, 33 years have been in Lake County. As a long time Lake County resident, an effective educational system benefits all. Giving young people a good foundation to build upon should be our goal.
We need a new voice for our county. We need someone with experience in the classroom, who understands student-teacher-parent relationships, and how a student learns best depending on their ability and socioeconomic backgrounds. Current graduation rates are a concern. We want our students to graduate and become contributing members of our society.
Successful students are a benefit to all of us. My goal as a School Board member will be to increase those graduation rates. I am also a strong proponent for vocational education. Not all of our students will go on to college to be doctors, lawyers, engineers, and teachers. We need our students to be prepared for the future to become productive members of our society.
After teaching at Tavares Elementary, Tavares Middle, and Tavares High School, I have a teacher's point·of·view for the educational needs from elementary, middle and high school levels. With my educational background, I have the knowledge and perseverance to do a great job! I have proven leadership as former Chairperson for Lake Soil and Water Conservation District. My devotion to Lake County and making our qualities of life better has always been my commitment. Below is a partial list of my qualifications. I need your help and your vote. Vote for our children's tomorrow, support and elect Betsy Farner today for Lake County School Board, District 4.
Thank you for your vote!!!
