Welcome to my official campaign webpage...and thank you for visiting!

I'm running for SUSD Governing Board to focus our schools and community on improving student competitiveness.  SUSD offers tremendous resources, excellent and committed teachers, and a supportive and engaged extended community.   I will build on the successes of the past by strongly supporting and advocating the following culture and practices:



Public Education is a Societal Good.  I commit to always be guided by the greater purpose public education serves and rise to the challenges of the time, not be cowed by them. 

Responsible Governance.  I commit to fiscal responsibility and transparency on the use of every penny spent, regardless of source.

Rethink Literacy.  I commit to support and advocate for innovative instruction and programs that rely upon objective analyses and demonstrative outcomes that benefit and strengthen our students' competitiveness.
