I am running for School Board because I want to help make a difference for the students in Long Beach. As a former LBUSD student myself, the parent of two LBUSD students, I have a deep love for the district and the community. However, LBUSD is a district that needs to step into the 21st century in its instruction and resources available for students. I want to work to bring Long Beach to the highest level in regards to technology, STEM instruction, and 21st century skills. 

I have my Master's Degree in education from UCLA, and my passion has always been to help bridge the achievement gap and provide high quality instruction to all students, regardless of socioeconomic status, ethnicity, home language or gender. 

I grew up on welfare and attended 9 different schools, 3 of which were in Long Beach. Public education was my way out of poverty. I used it to make a better life for myself and my family, and I want the same for all children, especially those who may be in difficult circumstances.

I was a 4th grade teacher for several years before becoming a stay at home mom for a while. I now work as an account executive for an educational technology company and have been in educational publishing for over 10 years. I know what different resources are available and which ones truly make a difference in the lives of students. I have worked with thousands of teachers and administrators in dozens of districts across California. I know what teachers and students need to be successful.

I have never run for office before, and am very new to all of this. But I can promise you, that if you support my campaign, I will do everything that I can to make a positive impact on the lives of students in Long Beach Unified School District.
