I support Jen Mitchell for School Board because she has a deep knowledge and understanding of Collier County Public Schools. She has volunteered in her children’s classrooms and served on School Advisory Committees and Parent Teacher Organizations at a variety of schools at all levels. She has also served on the Superintendent’s District Advisory Council. Jen thoroughly examines issues affecting our public schools and will make decisions based on what will benefit our 49,000 current students the most, as well as future students to come. Jen understands the challenges that our schools face and supports our school district in meeting those challenges.

It is a pleasure for me to endorse Jen Mitchell’s candidacy for Collier County School Board. I do so unequivocally and that is a rarity in 2018.
I met Jen as she was entering real estate. I am the Head Corporate Trainer for my brokerage and Jen participated in all the training sessions with great vigor and commitment. I also asked her to join me to present to subsequent “newbies” since her communication skills are exceptional.
As a former educator and high school principal, I have hired and/or collaborated with many individuals over many years and Jen shines among all. Her dedication, follow-through, communication skills and interpersonal skills combine to produce success resulting in establishing firm relationships.
As a real estate broker and past president of our local Board (Naples Area Board of REALTORS®), I am extremely pleased that Jen has joined our profession. She always conducts her business with ethics and professionalism. Those are vital qualities for all businesses – especially real estate which is focused on assisting customers to realize their home ownership dream – the American dream.
As a licensed instructor for NABOR®, Florida REALTORS® and the National Association of REALTORS®, I train many REALTORS®. I can assure you that Jen’s commitment to learning, education and children is rare. Likewise is her commitment to ethics. She will undoubtedly contribute much to Collier County’s children and educational institutions. Thus, it is a true pleasure to endorse her candidacy since I know she will work tirelessly to improve all systems and learning.

Her years of service in volunteer and leadership positions with our school district over the course of many years and desire to collaborate to continue to strengthen our A-rated district make her exactly the candidate our community needs as our next school board member representing District 3. I hope you will join me in voting for Jen Mitchell! She represents all that we desire in a school board member!

It is with great pleasure that I support Jen Mitchell as a school board member for district 3! Her enthusiasm for the classroom, dedication to children, and passion to help others, are all qualities needed to represent our school system.

She will work with others and her giving spirit will offer so much to our board. She is such a hard worker and she will do her homework! Jen will make an excellent addition to our school board.

It is a pleasure to endorse Jen Mitchell for Collier County Public School Board. Jen’s passion for children and our community is evident through her service as a teacher and realtor, but most importantly as the mother of four children. As our School Board Member, Jen will listen respectfully to parents, teachers, students, fellow board members, and community members to continue the great strides and vast improvements our Collier County Public Schools have experienced in recent years. These times are challenging as budgets become tighter, the search for talented educators and administrators becomes more difficult, and the needs of children vary widely. Jen will continue to work with all interested parties to address these challenges, and continue the momentum of Future Ready Collier making sure every child in our community has access to the right education making them “college or career ready”. Jen also understands that a strong education begins in the earliest stages of a child’s life, and supports early childhood education programs and helping parents get the resources they need to be their child’s first teacher. My wife Kathy and I have known Jen and her husband Chris since we first arrived in Naples nearly 13 years ago, working together on school initiatives and projects through our church. We wholeheartedly endorse her candidacy and hope she is elected to the Collier County School Board.

How fortunate Collier County is that Jen Mitchell has stepped forward to serve our school district. Having 4 children in the district, she knows first hand the importance of a great education for all of our youth in this area. Jen is a “team player” who seeks out the positives in every situation and will be a hard worker for every child in the district. We can only hope that more like Jen will step forward in the future.
