Teacher | Parent | Advocate
I've been working on the front lines
as an elementary teacher since 2007.
I'm a parent with a passion for students -
my children graduated from NSD schools!
I have extensive experience collaborating with parents, teachers and administrators to improve education for our children.
I will advocate for our students!
As a member of the Governing Board for National School District, I commit to listening to the voices of parents and children and incorporate them into the fundamental decisions that impact our schools. My faith and my vocation call me to be sure that students of all backgrounds are given access to high quality education, especially for those who have so much that stands in their way.
Accountability and transparency MUST be at the core of every interaction the Governing Board takes. Decisions that the Governing Board makes at the district level affect every student and employee. This applies to finances, curriculum choices, hiring practices, and all areas of district decisions. The Governing Board works for the community to support and hold accountable the Superintendent and district to the highest standards of education and integrity. I will hold myself to those same high standards.
A school district only runs well when all of the major players are on the same team, working together. Parents, teachers, staff, and administrators must do the hard work of listening to one another and working together for the best outcomes for our students. I will work with all parties, leaving no group unheard. I will call for respect from all parties to one another, so that all voices are brought together to work for the success of our students.
I can't win this race without your help!
Spreading the word, social media likes and shares, word-of-mouth, and donating are all ways of helping us build stronger schools in National City together!

I am grateful that my fellow teachers believe in my ability to lead on the Governing Board that so deeply impacts their work! We will collaborate well together for the sake of our students' education.
I'm proud to be endorsed by the party that has in our platform a deep commitment to, "public education that will prepare [students] to live, work, and thrive in a multicultural, multilingual, and highly connected world."
With the endorsement from our neighbors who care most deeply about justice for working families, I will carry this commitment to equity, to economic and social justice into my role as member of the Governing Board for National School District.
I stand in solidarity with working families in National City! I have been in support of worker's rights to organize for better wages, benefits and working conditions for a long time!
Special thanks to the Labor Council for endorsing my candidacy.
