Hi, I am Deborah Neary.
For the past 25 years, I have devoted my professional life to the betterment of the Omaha Community. I have partnered with local school districts to support curriculum goals, classroom studies, district strategic goals, and to serve our most vulnerable youth in order to help close achievement gaps. I have served as Education Director for the Durham Museum, as well as Executive Director for Midlands Mentoring Partnership. In these roles, I have brought innovation, support, and hope to community schools, students, and families.
In addition, for nearly the same amount of time, I have worked on education policy issues as well. In my current role as Executive Director at Midlands Mentoring Partnership, it is my job to work on education issues from the 50,000 foot level, as well as to understand all of the ways that challenges in our communities impact our education systems.
In my personal life, I have been a foster parent to 8 youth, as well as have an adult sister with an intellectual disability. Living these experiences combined with my 30 years in policy work have been my inspiration for pursuing ways to support educational systems, youth, and families, while building a better community in the process.
I believe that we have a moral obligation to help all types of learners, from every type of background. I believe there needs to be a balance kept between local school boards and state rules and mandates. I am a skilled advocate who is ready to play a larger role in supporting schools, teachers, and families.
When we increase our graduation rates for everyone, we all win.
This is tomorrow’s workforce that we are preparing today, and I am ready to advocate on their behalf.
Thank you for your support.
I want to hear about what YOUR concerns are regarding education in District 8.
