New Ideas. Fresh Prespective. Common Sense.
Britton Watson, elected to the Florence City Board of Education in District 6 on October 4, 2016, wants to be a voice for the teachers and parents because she recognizes that today's students are tomorrow's workforce and education is important to her.
I'm a practical and logical thinker. As a mother of three I've spent hundreds of hours on our campuses volunteering and now I'd like to be involved in a more formal manner."
Attributes Britton Watson brings to the position:
- Consensus Builder – Capable of working toward decisions that support established goals and objectives and is willing to compromise to achieve those goals
Community Participant – Enjoys meeting a variety of people and is comfortable identifying the community’s key communicators and reaching out to the community
Decision Maker – Knows her own style and is able to recognize others’ decision-making styles; she supports group decision-making that is in the best interest of the collective whole
Information Processor – Organizes priorities and schedules to handle a lot of verbal and written information
Effective Communicator – Is able to describe both what she wants and what others want; a good listener
Leader – Willing to take risks, be supportive of board colleagues, city staff, community leaders, and our community
Team Player – Will help promote the board’s vision and goals
I fully appreciate that the children are our ultimate focus. With that in mind, I will work with the other board members to create a shared vision for learning, sustain progress through continuous improvement; adopt and maintain current policies in written format; maintain strong ethical standards; and objectively seek answers to questions and challenges as they arise.”
