Mis 3 prioridades principales

  • Safe schools - All students deserve schools that are physically, emotionally, and culturally safe. Students can't learn of they don't feel safe: Let’s ensure all educators get support to address bullying, hate-speech and bias in our schools
  • Academic Support and Engagement - All students deserve challenging instruction and individualized support. Let’s increase academic opportunity and provide more resources
  • Communication and Transparency - All families deserve to be heard, regardless of income, home language or education level. Let’s set clear expectations for informing families, and simplify enrollment.

Biografía

 

I am an experienced educator, community organizer, and mom of twins. I have a masters in education from San Francisco State University and over 20 years of experience supporting public education. I helped secure almost $2 million for improvements at Carver ES in the Bayview, led strategic planning of the "A-G for All” graduation initiative in OUSD, and developed a successful United Way Bay Area grant for first-generation college-going families in SFUSD. Seeing the widespread inequity in our public school system, I wanted to take the lead in making a change. I co-founded SF Families Union, a parent organization devoted to creating safe, integrated, and inclusive public schools. In this capacity, I've served on the Close the Gap coalition, working with UESF, Jobs with Justice, Coleman Advocates, SEIU-1021, Children's Legal Services and other organizations focused on supporting democratically-controlled, community public schools. I also write a blog for families and educators committed to social justice in schools.

Creencias poliza

Filosofía política

Education is the great equalizer. We cannot have true equity in our country if all children don’t have access to high quality education. I am personally invested in this belief, because my family history is an example of the power of education. My mother grew up in public housing. My father’s parents were not allowed to go to high school because of  Jim Crow, and yet because of the investments made in them by parents and public school teachers, they both were able to become the first in their families to go to college and achieve PhDs.

I’m running for SF School Board because all children deserve the rich opportunities my parents had. Many children, especially those from marginalized communities attend schools that are overlooked and under-resourced. Previous generations made an investment in my parents and in me. I am personally committed to ensuring all children get the opportunities that me and my parents have had. For the 20+ years I’ve lived in San Francisco, I have successfully advocated for safe schools, access to strong academic programs, and increased communication with families. On the Board of Education I will ensure our district keeps its promises because every child deserves a great experience in SFUSD schools.
