PUT STUDENTS FIRST - I believe that we need to put students first and make decisions based on their needs. There are no easy decisions in a pandemic, but my first obligation is to the education and wellbeing of our children.
LET TEACHERS TEACH - I believe we need to let teachers teach. They need more resources and fewer non-teaching responsibilities. Let them innovate! Their enthusiasm and energy are vital to our students’ success.
LET PARENTS PARENT - I believe that parents should be allowed to parent. Strong families are the building blocks of a thriving community and that starts with empowerment.
I’ve lived in the San Juan Unified School District for 40 years and am a mother of four district graduates. Six of my grandchildren currently attend district schools. I’ve been a district employee and have owned my own successful small business. More importantly, I’ve spent the past two decades leading state and county commissions where I have worked with the community to find real solutions to real problems - homelessness, alcohol and drug abuse, mental health, and more.
As a member of the San Juan Unified School District Board of Education, I will work with you to improve our schools for all children.
