Biography

My diverse background and experiences provide me the qualities to help lead our schools to success. As a former classroom aide and a special needs behavioral aide, I've worked in the classroom with many different teachers and students.

 

Having a special needs sibling myself, I empathize with parents' concerns around providing the resources necessary for their child's growth and development.

Political Beliefs

Political Philosophy

Teachers need to feel inspired and valued in their work. Students need a rich and diverse curriculum, and the support staff necessary to help them thrive academically and socially.


Parents need to feel secure that their children are in an environment conducive to the positive growth of their children. 


As a labor organizer, I am confident in bringing us together for the success of our students, schools, and community.
