I believe our kids deserve the best chance at success, and that starts with the district making the right decisions—free of politics.
During the pandemic, I saw problematic decision-making in our school district—one I grew up in. I’m running for the San Juan Unified School District to not only reverse the failures that occurred over the last couple of years, but to turn things around for our children who have been set back by remote learning and decisions made that weren’t in their best interest.
I have always wanted our district’s kids to have access to the best resources—and our teachers to have great experiences, too. I believe the way to achieve both is to make decisions at the board level that reflect the true values of our community, not those of a few politicians.
Advocate for greater safety and security measures so our kids and teachers can come to school without fear so they can learn and thrive in the classroom.
Bring greater transparency, visibility and communication so our students, teachers, and administrators can participate in decisions about their future.
Fight for additional resources for our teachers and kids who have struggled socially and academically due to the pandemic.
I believe parents should have a say in the educational process.
Transparency is key, and threading parents and teachers together will only strengthen our community. After all, when schools are thriving, everyone in the community and local economy is thriving.
