“Let your voice be heard and your values counted.”
I want to thank everyone who supported me in any way during this God-given campaign experience through prayer, guidance, donations, spreading the word, block walking, electioneering at the polls, etc. I am grateful for your support and see the results as a win, as issues that were brought to light have triggered actions steps from the board and Tomball ISD. As a Tomball ISD resident, I look forward to doing what is within my reach, as God leads and allows me, to keep our school board of trustees accountable in the interest of the students as well as the taxpayers.
Top 3 Values/Goals as your school board trustee:
- Maintaining moral, biblical, godly values and upholding The United States Constitution as we educate our students requires people that are willing to be gatekeepers. Just like Stephanie was willing to be a gatekeeper for her own two children by choosing to homeschool, in order to give them a Christian education, she is willing to do what she can to protect the Tomball ISD students from the cultural attacks that have taken a political pathway to infiltrate the school system. Additionally, her background in special education in two school districts (2007-2020) as a bilingual speech-language pathologist would be a unique asset in also looking out for the student population that requires special services.
- Being a voice for the parents of students who attend public school in Tomball ISD. Making all the open board meetings available for live viewing and making the recording of these consistently available. Finally, making a more reasonable process to address the board would allow the district to take steps toward achieving a more community, parent, and teacher-embracing school board.
- Making responsible fiscal commitments and making critical decisions regarding the use of funds and awarding of contracts to show the taxpayers good stewardship. Taxpayers should know where and why their tax contributions are spent since over 60% of the school district’s revenue comes from property taxes.
Stephanie has lived in Texas for 27 years and has resided within Tomball ISD for over four years. She has been married to her high school sweetheart for 20 years with whom she is blessed to parent their two children of elementary and junior high school age. Her mother, also a Tomball ISD resident, is a retired elementary school teacher.
Stephanie graduated from the University of Houston with a B.A. in Communication Disorders (Magna Cum Laude) and an M.A. in Communication Sciences and Disorders. During graduate school, Stephanie worked as a substitute teacher in Spring Branch Independent School District. Once she obtained her master’s degree, she provided speech and language therapy services as a bilingual speech-language pathologist for children 2-15 years of age in a public-school setting from 2007 to 2020. This gave Stephanie the opportunity to experience both the general education and the special education spheres. For the last six years, Stephanie has served in the preschool and children’s ministries at her church. She has served as a vacation Bible school teacher and assistant, worship leader for 4–5-year-old children, and Bible study teacher and assistant for the elementary-age students. Stephanie has worked as an Alternate Judge at different polling locations in Harris County for the past four elections. She also served as a delegate in the 2022 Republican Party of Texas State Convention.
For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.
