Vote ELana Sterling For a Sterling Education!

Having lived in Fallbrook for more than 15 years, I feel very connected to our town and the Fallbrook way of life. My daughter graduated from Fallbrook  High School where she enjoyed her academics, sang in the school choir, and played water polo. From Fallbrook High School she went on to earn a master's degree in Speech-Language Pathology. Taking into account all that a quality education from Fallbrook public schools has done for my family,  giving back to our community by working to improve our High school is a natural choice for me.

I have been a guest lecturer, CTE advisory member and student mentor at FUHS, and I feel strongly that we need to provide a well rounded education for our students. Education should focus on the needs of all our students, and keep funds in the classroom where it can have the greatest benefit to our students.

I am a registered nurse and a local business woman. I have worked at Rady Children’s Hospital for more than 25 years, caring for critically ill children. This has taught me how important happy, healthy, fulfilled, well-adjusted kids are to the future. We have a duty to provide our students with an environment conducive to pursuing their goals and talents.

Political Beliefs

Political Philosophy

The Governing Board of Fallbrook Union High School is a non partisan position. 

My philosophy on school board governance is that we are there for the benefit of our students. We owe it to them to keep the lion’s share of school funds in the classroom where it will have the largest impact on their educational experience. I feel strongly that we must be fiscally responsible and make our tax dollars count.
