"Rethinking Success Together" Campaign Launched
Reflection is an essential tool to planning, developing and implementing within any community or school. Connect with the Community Series every Wednesday at 7:30 p.m., as we begin to develop how Vanessa can best serve our educational community by addressing the things that really matter.
Teaching & Learning
As caregivers and parents, how do we help to prepare our students for success in the upcoming school year?
Join us for Facebook Live with a Cup of Tea as we sit down with educators within our community and learn about how to build stronger networks of support within our District and Schools, while gaining helpful tools to guide our students in reaching success in the upcoming academic year 2021-2022.
Pathways to Success Beyond High-School
Did you know that a Panther is a type of Tiger?
Together lets build a framework for all sports and clubs that lead to a readiness pathway towards graduation and citizenship. More to come...
Meet & Greet
Please join Mark Hensen and Vanessa in dialogue about the shared visions for our school district. I am excited to be reunited with him in developing an action plan that represents our neighbors, communities, families, educators and students. Most of all, I am excited to demonstrate how two community representatives with different experiences can bring likeness towards the concerns, issues, roles and responsibilities that secure your trust, partnership and vote. We welcome each of you to participate and learn on how your two (2) votes can continue the true teamwork of Rethinking Success Together.

Let's Find Our Rhythm Together"
I am humbled and honored to have been endorsed by my friends, neighbors, and the community partners collectively organized through the representation of the Franklin County Democratic Party (FCDP).
As the 2021 Endorsed Candidate for the Pickerington Local School Board, I am looking forward to implementing a platform of “Rethinking Success
I believe that my candidacy will bring our community stakeholders together in a way that allows our community to serve as a voice united in solidarity. United we can advocate for stronger support services for our students, educators, student support workers, parents and caregivers in Pickerington and the surrounding communities.
I am encouraged by the 138 votes that I received from my colleagues in arms. I accept this endorsement of yes to engage with our community stakeholders and I pledge to use my voice in ways that build bridges between our educational system’s responsibility to teach and learn, ultimately aiding in the growth of thriving communities and families.
Collectively, we can help our students expand their educational experiences to enter competitive career pathways beyond high school – ultimately coaching them to become productive citizens and keeping our neighborhoods strong.
I want to thank the members of the Executive Committee, Michael
Sexton, Chair of FCDP, Antone White (Chair of the Screening Committee), the members of the Screening Committee and each of the members of the Franklin County Democratic Party for believing in me and allowing me this opportunity to serve.
I would like to thank my family, for their legacy of understanding good stewardship and for their ongoing commitment to serving others.
A special congratulations to each of the 2021 FCDP Candidates. I look forward to joining with you, walking our communities, telling our stories, and demonstrating how education serves as a “common language” in the quest to close the gap – moreover how education serves as a bridge into the other aspects of government.
“United we can achieve all that looks hard!”
Respectfully yours! Vanessa
