As a former teacher and elementary school principal, I know what it takes to ensure a student's academic prosperity. A school district must partner with parents and teachers to provide the necessary foundation for a student to reach the height of his or her potential.

Early on in my teaching career, I realized how important it was for students to have access to as many resources as possible to be able to succeed. As an elementary school principal, I brought that same ideal into my approach as an administrator.

I became an education consultant in 2010 and have worked with ed tech companies, education nonprofits, and several public schools to achieve their goals by developing curriculum and strategic growth plans. It’s been fulfilling work, but over the years I have been drawn back to public school service. 

I am running for the East Whittier City school board to bring a fresh perspective to the decision-making process that will improve conditions for students, teachers, and staff and better support parents.

My priorities:

  • Ensure greater district transparency 
  • Support teachers and parents to close the achievement gap
  • Bring more 21st Century technology into the classroom
  • Work to continue to increase funding for the Arts in our schools

Donate today and let's build our children's future together!
