Main Issues: Feldman believes technology improvements are critical to improving Shelby County schools. She also believes communication between administrators, teachers and parents is vital.
“Shelby County needs to be able to prepare our students for the path they choose, whether it is the workforce or higher education. Technology is a vital part of each of those paths, and we must prepare them in the classroom for those futures,” she said.
“Visiting and being in each of the school zones of our county, I know that communication between the Central Office, administrators, teachers and parents is key to positive impact within the school community. Our county is growing by leaps and bounds, we must anticipate future growth and provide for our students adequately. I do not want the potential of our students in Shelby County to remain unfulfilled,” she said.
Education: Bachelor’s in communication, Auburn University, 2004.
