I ran for school board 18 years ago because I was impressed with the district as a whole. The teachers and the district gave me a great education and I wanted to give something back.

Term Expires: 2026

I decided to join the school board for a lot of reasons but the one that is most important is doing what is best for kids, their education, and their future. One of the most unexpected joys of the job is handing out diplomas at the end of the school year. I get a chance to meet the reason why I am here on the board, the kids.

My family and I love the STMA School District and community and I have always loved working with and advocating for children. I feel that serving on the school board is another way that I can give back and make a positive difference. I've enjoyed learning more about our schools and district, meeting and listening to our wonderful staff members, attending events and trainings, and seeing students and teachers actively engaged in teaching and learning.

Director Travis Weber

Hometown: Rogers
Parent Advisory Committee: Big Woods Elementary, Fieldstone Elementary
Term Expires: 2026

I believe in giving back to the community and I believe in being involved rather than criticizing from the sidelines. I have two daughters - 3rd and 5th grade - and saw a lack of representation on the board of families with young children in our schools. STMA has been a great district for my family since we moved here in 2009, we need to be innovative in our pursuit of excellence and come up with solutions to growing class sizes and retention of our awesome staff.
