Kelly Casey Van Horn for Board of Education
The race for Board of Education just got a little more exciting for my entire family yesterday when my cousin, Kelly Casey Van Horn threw her hat into the ring. And although I am biased, I think she makes an excellent candidate.
You see, Kelly has a passion for education. She taught 3rd grade for 8 years in the Fairfax county public schools system, so she is familiar with the rewards and challenges of being a classroom teacher. This passion also led Kelly to further her own education, and she holds a masters degree with a concentration in new professional studies. In addition, she was a private tutor for a remediation program for the school for students who did not pass the state standardized test.
As an experienced teacher, she would be an insightful voice for public education. She has a two year old and a one year old, so she has a long term vested interest for hcpss for at least the next 20 years. She believes redistricting/overcrowding is an issue that needs to be resolved and wants do her part to ensure that the Board works for students, parents, and teachers alike.
This is an exciting new chapter in Kelly’s life, and the Board of Education would be lucky to have her. I hope you will consider giving her your vote.
