Educational Philosophy: "I believe that every child should have the opportunity to receive a quality education in a safe and healthy environment. Education is not only subject matter but a continuing process of helping students to better understand themselves and their world."

Educational Philosophy: "We as parents, educators and board members must provide our children with a safe and conducive learning environment. I believe learninig is a life long process. We must challenge them to meet their full potential educationally so they will be successful in life."
Rev. Calvin Trammell

Educational Philosophy: "I believe if we are to get the full potential out of our students, as well as our schools, we must present a caring and supportive environment. It is my responsibility as a school board member to make sure that our schools exemplify these qualities."
Mrs. Marianne Jordan
Roanoke BOE member since: 2011
Educational Philosophy: "The children are our future! We must train a child in the way he should go. When he/she is older, he/she will not depart from it because the foundation will have been laid."
Mr. Steve Burns
Roanoke BOE member since: 2012
Educational Philosophy: "I believe that the children of Roanoke City Schools are our future. Each student from kindergarten through twelfth grade needs a secure, caring, stimulating atmosphere in which to grow and mature emotionally, intellectually, physically and socially. The One to One initiative, as well as the teaching of 21st Century Student Skills will be a tremendous asset to our students. There are many great things happening in Roanoke City Schools and I am honored to serve on the board and continue the wonderful legacy of education for which this school system is known!"
