My name is Dawn Tauber. I have lived in the Monroe-Woodbury community for more than 17 years with my husband Alan and our children. My son, Jaden, is graduating from Monroe-Woodbury High School and is attending Cornell University this fall. My daughter, Kayla, will be a junior at the High School.

Since the pandemic began, children and adolescents have higher rates of anxiety, depression and stress. And of even greater concern, experts say the effects of the pandemic on students are likely to be felt for years to come. Social and emotional health of our children is always at the forefront of decisions and conversations for me.

In 2018, I worked with the High School administration to create and chair M-W CARES, the largest character education program of its kind in the state.

I support the district’s overarching intent to create a culture of Compassion, Acceptance, Respect, Empowerment and Success for our children. Social and emotional learning is an integral part of education.

On May 18, I once again humbly ask for your trust and support in re-electing me as a trustee.
