Experience

Biography

  1. Kevin has two daughters attending Twin Peaks Middle School (They were at Turtleback Elementary School TK-5). I have a Masters in Human Resources Organizational Development and a Bachelors in Business Administration and Marketing. I am currently a Retention Manager at a technology company. I have been on the RB Planning Board, PUSD Site Council, PUSD District Advisory Council, President of the Turtleback Education Foundation, and I am currently on the PUSD Safety Committee and Twin Peaks Foundation.

  2. I have always had an interest in helping my community and now is a great time. When my daughters attended Turtleback, I was an involved parent. I was asked to step up and lead the foundation and served as its president for two years. I wanted to see how I could take that experience and help my community in other ways. When the school board approved a districting map and my neighborhood was within an open area with no current board members, I thought it was an opportunity to serve my community.

Political Beliefs

Political Philosophy

The relationship between the School Board and Superintendent should be collegial and complimentary.  I say that, because with a new Superintendent, a new cabinet and both labor unions with new leadership, we have a fresh start from the past. We now need to focus our efforts on the future.  As a School Board member, I see myself responsible for overseeing the finances and ensuring that policies are in place to best position the district to serve all the students of PUSD.

My Top Priorities are:

1. Provide direction on ensuring an equitable educational opportunity for all students no matter what school they attend.

2. Ensure there is improved support for special needs and low-income students to enable all students to be successful.

3. Financially we need to have a balanced budget in years 1, 2 & 3 to ensure we gain back the trust of the community.

4. Being visible in the schools to ensure that policies and budgets are properly being implemented.

5. To be innovative.
