  • Resource Allocation & Transparency - Returns on educational investments, effective resource use, school expansion/mergers/relocation and construction (Measure H).

Filosofía política

I will work to insure every student has access to quality and equitable education.  I want to improve the support for our teachers and staff, and find ways for parents and our community to participate more in our children’s education, My role is to act strategically to insure fiscal responsibilities by building collaboration with all stakeholders and the Trustees can address concerns and improve them to a higher standard.  Our student’s success is based on a fundamental education system, which I want to be a part of.  As a single parent of two young boys, our children’s education and well-being concern me.
