Former principal endorses Dannhausen-Brun for D181 seat

Christine Dannhausen-Brun is a highly-qualified candidate for the District 181 Board of Education. She is intelligent, well-read and a hardworking volunteer. For over 12 years, while her children attended Madison School, we collaborated together in a variety of ways.

Christine is an involved parent in her children’s activities, with a wide variety of school endeavors and district initiatives. Her children are very active in Scouts, sports, music and dance, and she often offers her support. At Madison School, she could be found contributing to a variety of school events and committees. Others could count on her to follow through. Christine was active with PTO programs and fundraisers. She consistently photographed students at events and her attention to detail was evident in the yearbook and with publicity. Christine was also active on district curriculum and program committees. She is observant and listens to other’s perspectives. She is a problem solver, often researching related topics for consideration. Her passion to provide quality learning opportunities that fully engage students is evident in all that she was involved with.

I regularly attended BOE meetings and worked with members on various committees. The staff and I appreciated having members who were respectfully engaged and responsive to research and the diversity of opinions expressed. Intellect, organization and dedication is essential to effectively address the needs of students, staff and families. Christine demonstrates these characteristics and will be a competent BOE member. — Mindy McMahon, retired Madison School principal
