My name is Dr. Glenn Fox. He is asking for your vote as a Trustee of the Chelsea Board of Education. I am a devoted husband and father to her two young sons who attend her school in Chelsea. My family lives in Sylvan Township and enjoys a rural lifestyle of connecting with the land through farming and conservation. We value being part of the Chelsea community with its small town charm and intimacy with family, friends and neighbors.

Professionally, I am on the faculty of the University of Michigan School of Medicine and Director of the UM Anatomical Endowment Program. My experience also includes Jackson College as a Professor of Science and Chair of the Department, UM Biology, and Michigan’s Mathematics and Science Scholars Program. My students include physicians and students, dental students, graduate and undergraduate college students, high school students, and learners from around the world via several Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs). I am proud to call myself a lifelong learner and my teaching experience and ability to learn from my students are both rewarding and important for me to grow as an educator.

In total, I have over 20 years of successful teaching, research and management experience in higher education.

As a beneficiary of primary, secondary and higher public education, I feel a responsibility to use public (and publicly funded) education to support public schools. We believe that experience as an educator, scientist, administrator and parent is the only qualification to serve at Chelsea School. Chelsea School District is Michigan’s top 25 district, supporting students, teachers, paraprofessionals, staff, administrators, and their families to build on and improve an already strong foundation to help CSD come out on top I believe we can. 10 districts.

I believe in the power of community and that through sincere effort, civic communication and mutual support, we can go further, stronger and do more together. Communities leverage the talents, creativity, perspectives and strengths of their members to benefit everyone.

I believe that our schools must prepare our children for life and play an important role not only academically, but also in their social and emotional development. The CSD Alumni Portrait outlines how Chelsea School supports the growth and development of children in the areas they need to prepare them for the future. I support this vision and the wide range of opportunities for learning across the curriculum and extracurricular activities.

One of my responsibilities in developing a curriculum for students is to provide them with an effective foundational education that meets the needs of each learner as they progress along highly specialized pathways. Chelsea teachers and administrators have incorporated input from families and other stakeholders to create an effective and well-integrated curriculum and to support student success in core subjects (traditional reading, writing, mathematics). I paid close attention. They use their education and experience to grow and develop a curriculum that works for current and future students. Preparing students for a career that likely won’t exist until they leave school is a daunting task, and our her CSD educator is my confidence in this mission, her full support. , and have thanks.

My deep and abiding love and appreciation for the Chelsea community and school encourages me to contribute my efforts, expertise and enthusiasm to the Chelsea School. We will continue to work tirelessly to advocate and support all stakeholders here.
