Preguntas y Respuestas

Filosofía política

Students should be at the forefront of all of our decision making as a board as their needs should always come first.  The teachers and staff are the backbone of the schools and their commitment to their students should never be underscored, they are amazing, caring and essential members of the school community.  Additionally, for the future of our students, access to technology and cutting edge instructional resources needs to be explored to ensure that our students are college and career ready.     I am a candidate for the Oakley School Board because I felt the call to serve the students, employees and parents of the Oakley community.  There is not currently a teacher on the board and I feel that a teacher who understands Oakley and the dynamics could have a positive impact on the decisions made by the board.  As a former Oakley teacher, I am in a unique position to serve in this capacity because I understand the issues that Oakley faces. I also personally know many teachers, aides and other classified staff and know their commitment to their students and families which is often overlooked by the administration in Oakley.
