My Top 3 Priorities

  • KIDS FIRST. Ensure all students from all backgrounds can achieve and be challenged academically while enjoying a safe school environment.
  • SUPPORT OUR TEACHERS. Providing sufficient technology, professional development and the freedom our faculty needs to innovate are all essential to ensuring the best education possible for our children.
  • ENCOURAGE PARENT INVOLVEMENT. An engaged parent community supported by regular communication and a respect for parent’s rights is essential to the success of our district.

Experience

Biography

I grew up in a family of ten children with a mom and dad that were both public school teachers.  As such, not only do I intimately understand teachers, I also understand the value of being frugal and staying within a budget.

My first job after college was in Washington, DC as an office manager and french translator for a technology transfer company. I met my future husband, Craig, in the DC area at a church activity for young single adults.  

Craig and I have five wonderful children (now ages 11 to 22). When our youngest was still in diapers, Craig left his job at Northrop Grumman and our family moved to Indiana where Craig earned his PhD in Finance while I earned my Master's in Education, both from Purdue University.  By the end of our time in Indiana, all seven members of our family were in school - we are truly a family that heavily focuses on education.  I have always been very involved in the schools where our children attend, most often as a room mom, but also in other organizations such as the PTA.  I was president of the parent-teacher organization at Ball's Bluff Elementary School.

Ultimately our family moved to Thousand Oaks so that Craig could accept a position as a professor at Pepperdine University.  I was already licensed as a school counselor in Indiana, and after the move became licensed as a K-12 school counselor in California, where I still hold an active school counselor license even though I have currently chosen to be a full-time mom.

All of the Everett children have attended CVUSD schools.  The oldest two, Jessica and William, both graduated from Newbury Park High School.  The youngest three are still in CVUSD schools (high school and middle school). With children currently attending our public school system, I have unique insight into the issues facing real students and parents every day.

Political Beliefs

Political Philosophy

I have always believed in the value of public education. As the daughter of two public school teachers, I was raised to love the public school system.  Furthermore, as a licensed school counselor with a masters degree in education, former PTA president and mother of current CVUSD students, I understand the important impact that a top quality school system has on the community. 

 

Providing the highest quality education to all CVUSD students requires leadership to bring together administration, faculty, and parents to accomplish our educational goals - within a responsible budget.
