My Top 3 Priorities

  • To instill a "put students first" mindset that maintains a focus on the quality of students' experiences; ensuring that gaps, barriers, and inequities across systems and programs are continuously addressed to better support their growth and success.
  • To lead with transparency and integrity, and demand accountability to safeguard the district from cronyism, fraud and mismanagement – making sure that every dollar in the district's budget is spent appropriately and wisely.
  • To be accessible and respectful of the concerns and values of students, families, employees (administrative, certificated, and classified) and stakeholders from the district’s many communities; promoting inclusivity and growing a culture of trust.
