To the editor:

It is time to elect someone to the Isle of Wight County School Board who has actually been in a classroom in the last five years.

Julia Perkins has been a classroom teacher, a bus driver, a coach, a lead teacher and the athletic director at Windsor High School. She has been a professional educator her entire adult life.

Very few people know the educational process in Isle of Wight like Julia Perkins does. She has a wealth of knowledge concerning student achievement, curriculum design and behavioral modifications that will benefit the citizens of Isle of Wight.

She is a leader — ask anyone who worked with her. And she is a motivator — ask any of her former students. Her main concern always has been what was best for the students.

Under the last administration, this county’s school system was derailed and almost ruined. It’s time to get the Isle of Wight County School Board back on track.

Citizens of the Windsor District, cast your vote for Julia Perkins to represent you on the School Board. The children of Isle of Wight County deserve the best; their future and the county’s future depend on it.
