My Top 3 Priorities

  • Fiscal responsibility and support of innovative programs
  • Build trust and positive communication with all stakeholders
  • Advocate for positive connections with outside agencies and community groups to bring strong after school programs




I believe in the power of excellent education. Born and raised in San Jose, I worked for the Evergreen School District for 35 years striving to make this true for our children, families, and community.  Every school was a California Distinguished School multiple times, and National Blue Ribbon Schools, thanks to the teachers, staff, students, and families working together to make it happen.


With Teaching and Administrative Credentials, and a Masters in Organizational Development, plus 35 years of experience in all aspects of the school district, I am uniquely qualified to make an immediate impact on the school board. I am familiar with what makes students successful, finance, budgets, facilities, policy, and educational practices.


I will work with all of the citizens and employees of Evergreen to continue the legacy of excellence that is a hallmark of Evergreen. I will work towards unity and trust.


Please join proud past Evergreen educators Will Ector, Larry Milligan, Sharon Moore, Dr. Gayle Rucker, John Shaw, Dr. Robert Pruitt, Phil Bond, past Board Trustee Jeff Fischer, Leila Welch, Sylvia Alvarez, Vince Songcayawon, and community members Craig Mann, Robert Sandoval, Victor and Isabel Gonzalez in support of my candidacy.
