My Top 3 Priorities

  • Provide successful leadership and collaboration to the board just as it was in 2013-2015
  • Working together to improve the district and academic achievement for all student.
  • Provide safe campuses and district facilities for students, staff, parents and community.



Hayward Unified School District Board of Trustee, School Board Trustee — Elected position (2016–current)



I am dedicated to bringing a broad perspective that includes detailed knowledge of the Hayward Unified School District; an understanding of the budgeting process; an ability to make the tough decisions and an ability to be objective and fair. My executive leadership as the president of the HUSD Board of Trustees yielded higher graduation rates, higher academic achievement and stability within the school district. As a Teacher of the Year (Alameda County), California Department of Education Model Practice program teacher, California Association of Regional Occupational Centers and Programs Outstanding Teacher of the Year and national award winning forensic science and criminal justice teacher, it is a high priority for this district that we perform as a cohesive unit including board members, district personnel, staff, teachers and community members. It is essential that we effectively communicate across all areas, establishing and maintaining trust and common goals. One goal must be to provide a quality education to all children of our community. I have managed large numbers of people in the educational environment and have always been successful. I am willing to devote the time and energy that this community deserves in fulfilling my duties as a member of this board.
