Hi my name is Miamon Queeglay and I am asking for your vote for the upcoming Osseo Area School Board election. I am running for school board because as I watched board meetings last year I noticed an immense need for diversity. I am currently working as multi-cultural liaison, have experience as a youth development educator, and strong knowledge in the public health field regarding disparities and issues affecting communities. I grew up in district 279 attending Zanewood Elementary, Northview Jr High, and graduated from Osseo Senior High. As a first generation Liberian; I understand the importance of serving and empowering social, racial, and identity development. I want to continue to be a champion for an amazing district. I understand how education impacts long term health outcomes and the importance of being involved with families in our district and meeting them where they are. I want to be a voice for our community and ensure teachers have classroom sizes that are appropriate to lead to greater retention of staff and cohesive learning environment children.
I cannot ignore the biggest problem in the district which is the huge divide and achievement gap. I am running to bridge that gap and help provide equity for ALL students. We all need to remember that each and every child in this district are OUR children. This includes my three boys who are (or will be) students in this district. I am a mom that wants the best education for her boys and all children in our community. I want to be a voice for my community where change is needed.
