I am excited about voting this Tuesday, Nov. 7th! As a citizen, I believe it is so important to take part in this civic duty. And as a new resident of Shaker and long time teacher at the high school I am proud to be voting for Lisa Cremer. She will be an independent voice and independent thinker on the Shaker School board.
Shaker Heights High School Teacher
As a teacher I’m voting for Lisa Cremer for Shaker Heights Board of Education because she is an independent thinker. She understands the needs of our community and will be an advocate for all of our students.
Shaker Heights High School Teacher
I am honored to endorse Lisa Cremer for the Shaker School Board. As a parent of two Shaker students and a former math teacher and math coach in the Shaker Schools I know first hand the challenges that face Shaker Schools and students. Lisa also understands these challenges and I am encouraged by her insight and her advocacy for opportunities for all students and families. Her seat on the board will give a voice to the families in the Lomond area of Shaker as she is the only candidate that lives in this area. Her background in social work gives her an edge in understanding some of the most critical issues in education. Her science and research background have rooted her in sound reasoning and data-based decision making and questioning. I believe Lisa can cultivate the seeds of possibility in Shaker Schools, taking something that is good and making it even better-something great for ALL Shaker students and families.

This, in combination with her community-building experience, will bring about informed, thoughtful and reflective discussions on how best to educate and uplift our students.

If elected, she will be a representative who will be analytical and thorough, making decisions that will be best suited for not only all the students, but the teachers and community as well.

Rose Lee Clement
Fernway Parent & PTO Secretary
I am endorsing Lisa and I ask that you do the same. She is thorough, thoughtful, open minded, pragmatic and collaborative in every part of her life and I am confident she will be the same for our Shaker Schools. Lisa, as a parent with elementary and pre-K school age daughters, will bring a very valuable perspective to the Board of Education. Her unique and refreshing viewpoint is very important to our school district and to the parents we need to attract and retain in Shaker Heights. Lisa is committed to helping Shaker schools maintain and strengthen their high standards, initiatives and policies, not just for today but also for the future student generation. Her passion for education and this young parent perspective, together with her extensive public health, science and social work professional experience, will be a great strength to our Board of Education and to our city.
Former Shaker Heights of Education member
Lisa is highly educated in multiple scientific disciplines, having earned her Bachelor’s Degree in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology from Princeton. She also has two Master’s Degrees from Boston University in Social Work and Public Health. Who will care more about the education of our children than someone like Lisa who has made educational achievement a lifelong personal goal? Lisa is a high-energy individual with the personal drive to meet challenges head-on, a quality essential to anyone serving full-time on the Shaker Heights Board of Education. In Lisa, I see toughness, drive, ability and determination to be a full-time representative for Shaker citizens. Lisa has a personal long-term stake in the Shaker Schools as a parent of three young daughters aged pre-K through third grade. She will have children in the Shaker Schools through 2031! No one cares more about keeping our public schools strong than a direct beneficiary of those schools, an involved parent like Lisa. If elected, Lisa will be a representative you can call with a problem or concern; she will work full-time as your school board member; and she will be able to effectively master the facts and data necessary to make informed decisions on behalf of all our children.
Nancy R. Moore
Former Shaker Heights Board of Education member
Current Shaker City Council member
During the 15+ years I taught math at Woodbury along with other initiatives in both K-4 schools and other districts, I have seen first-hand the challenges facing Shaker educators and administrators. These challenges are academic, social, and economic as we work to help all students achieve to their fullest potential. I strongly endorse Lisa Cremer as she brings a unique set of experiences and skills to support the district’s efforts in three critical areas: early education, public health and social work, and STEM education. Of equal importance are Lisa’s personal characteristics of being one who is thoughtful, balanced, hard-working, and open to the ideas of others in constructive discussions: making her an ideal candidate for the Board of Education.
Former Woodbury math teacher
I am honored to endorse Lisa Cremer as she is someone who not only understands the importance of inquiry and STEM in education, but also recognizes the diverse socio-economic community that we live in and is ready to address the challenges and injustices that some school children face on a day-to-day basis. Lisa’s background in Social Work gives her a unique perspective and has given her the passion to find solutions that will make the Shaker community stronger and to keep our schools at the “top of the class”‘ in innovation, quality, and equity for all school children.

She is not only qualified because of her love for her community and schools, her expertise and passion for science, social work and public health, but also because she is incredibly personable and so relatable to everyone she knows. She is driven, disciplined and someone who is gifted at connecting people and making sure everyone knows they are welcomed, seen and heard. Lisa has been connecting with parents, teachers and children long before she ever decided to run for the School Board.

She is a highly educated woman who we are confident will dedicate her time and her considerable talents and energy to the job. We also believe that the Board needs passionate, independent-minded members–like Lisa–who will doggedly chart the course that our schools need to follow in order to ensure that all Shaker students have the best educational opportunities possible.
I am writing to share my enthusiastic support for Lisa Cremer. The Shaker Heights Board of Education is so fortunate to have a candidate of this caliber and dedication. I have had the good fortune of knowing her for the past 5 years from the time our kids were in preschool.

She cares deeply about the quality of education and will advocate fairly and passionately for all kids, families, teachers and administrators. She will bring vision, expertise and dedication to our public schools. I know that she wants every child in our city to have the same support and success that she desires for her own daughters.
