West Burlington School Board candidate Larisa Conner believes her insight as a parent would make her a good addition to the board.
"Having both kids in school, I know what's going on in the schools.It's easy for me to see the current issues," Conner said.
Conner said her interest in running for a school board seat stemmed from her four-year involvement in West Burlington's school improvement advisory committee.
"We analyzed a lot of data for the high school and elementary school.It opened my eyes on what's going on there, the needs of the students," Conner said.
For nearly a decade, Conner has taught English as a second language courses at Southeastern Community College.She and her husband, Warren, have two children, a son who is a junior at WBHS and a daughter enrolled in second grade at West Burlington Elementary School.

Larissa Conner, a native Russian who taught English as a foreign language to students in her home country and in Germany before coming to the U.S. five years ago, is the instructor.
Conner, who joined the faculty this year after four years working in the ABE program, is not Southeastern's first ESL instructor.
Conner said the point is to get those students to interact in a classroom setting with native English speakers.
The idea, Conner said, is to get her students up to the point where they can graduate alongside their English-speaking schoolmates.
Unless an extension is granted, students on I-20 visas have four semesters to pass the English proficiency test, become full-time students in a degree or career program and to graduate.Conner said her students are motivated to learn.
"Around the world," she said, "it is very prestigious to go and study in the U.S."
