Hillary Fletcher is thrilled to announce her candidacy for the position of School Board Director for the second time. She notes that her first term has been one of her life's most challenging yet fulfilling experiences. As a school director during a pandemic, superintendent search, and political turmoil, Hillary has remained steadfast in her commitment to improving our district for all students while keeping in mind the welfare of the larger RTMSD community.
During her first year as a director, Hillary accepted several leadership roles to support public education and students. These roles include serving as a board director for the Delaware County Intermediate Unit and the Delaware County Technical School, co-chair of the Delaware County Legislative Council, and liaison for the Pennsylvania School Boards Association. This candidate believes in actively engaging with education professionals and decision-makers at all levels to ensure the success of RTMSD and students throughout the Commonwealth.
Following a degree in business from Bentley University, Hillary's passion for education and supporting children led her to pursue coursework toward a graduate degree in education. She has nearly 30 years of experience working and volunteering in diverse educational environments, including public and private schools and traditional and non-traditional settings. Her experience as a student teacher, substitute teacher, parent, and school director has given her unique perspectives on how schools can better serve students and communities.
As a school board member, Hillary is committed to embracing new approaches to education and promoting lifelong learning and service. She will continue to help our growing district achieve the best outcomes for all students and district residents and is excited to be a part of the progress and vision of Rose Tree Media School District. She states, "We have an excellent school system and are uniquely positioned to be a leader in public education; together, we can embrace diverse educational standards and positively affect our entire community."
Hillary will continue to work diligently for our district's progress and support new approaches to realizing the ideals of an education grounded in fundamentals and the development of the whole person. She would be honored to serve again as a School Director. Please consider casting your vote for Hillary in May and November.
