If you vote for me, I will use my diverse background, experience, and commitment to transparency to help the El Paso school system support our students, teachers, and community better.
EPISD is still recovering from a cheating scandal so serious that it resulted in the imprisonment of the last Superintendent and the removal of the entire Board of Trustees. As a result, the El Paso community expects the Board to operate now with transparency and integrity - and the Board struggles with this, as shown in the way they voted to extend the Superintendent's contract, along with a 15% raise.
I intend to serve with integrity: I will communicate and involve the community in decisions; I will ask for and listen to input from teachers, PTA's, and citizens; I will work to set priorities based on the best practices of successful education systems.
I'm an army brat, so I have lived all over. This gave me lots of exposure to different education systems: I attended two elementary schools, two middle schools, two high schools, two Universities, plus I worked at two other universities - in the United States and Europe. I came to El Paso to work at Western Refining as a chemical engineer. I have lived in Texas for much of my life including Round Rock and Corpus Christi.
