Filosofía política

I am an advocate for public education and believe in providing all students an exemplary academic education and the foundation to become productive citizens of their community.  I believe a quality school program pursues excellence through a differentiated curriculum focusing on rigor, relevance and relationships.  I believe in equity for all students and giving every student what he or she needs, surrounding each child with the resources that they need. To accomplish this for all students, school districts need to have a clear and shared focus, high standards and expectations for all students.  Students need a strong connection to family and community.  The critical piece to a quality elementary and middle school program is to have a strong and effective goverance team.  I am dedicated to each and every student and will work tirelessly for every student and the Rincon Valley School Community.  I have demonsrated my leadership skills over the past five years and I know what is required to move this district forward.  I am willing to put the time in to understand our very compex education system as it is continually changing.  I would be honored to continue to serve this outstanding school district.
