Our family has been a part of JUSD for the past 11+ years. IEP’s, 504’s, Gate, Honors, AP’s, general education and many other school activities. There have been some great relationships that we developed along the way as well as key learnings for my children and myself to improve our experience with tools to use for the future. What better way to pay back our community than to share and continue to support other families to assist with a great educational opportunity for their children? Being a servant in the community, a listening ear when needed, direct approach with questions for inquiries or guidance, and using a global view between students, faculty and the district. I am in a place where I would love to be the liaison for our schools and residents.
