Mis 3 prioridades principales

  • It is important to maintain prudent financial stewardship to enable CVUSD to excel. The Board must continue to be fiscally conservative and increase the district’s reserves. It is also critical that there are the necessary resources for learning,
  • Priority must continue to be given to retaining and recruiting quality staff throughout CVUSD. Staff members have a great impact on a child’s academic success and our district’s culture is to support and nurture our own.
  • CVUSD has recently completed a strategic plan that I support wholeheartedly. I encourage you to review our vision, goals, core values and priorities at

Filosofía política

I have served on the Castro Valley School Board for twenty-one years and am very proud of our schools and the School Board’s positive impact.  Castro Valley Unified School District has become a “district of choice” where families seek to enroll their children and are a source of pride for our whole community.  In June, the community’s voters approved a $123 million investment in their schools, a great vote of confidence in the Board of Education.

I believe that my community has continued to trust and re-elect me because I am a passionate champion for education.  I am a thoughtful, prepared board member and keep each child's academic achievement at the forefront of every decision made.

I am involved in the community in many ways and have made an investment for almost 30 years to make Castro Valley a wonderful environment for families and children.
