Priorities as a potential school board candidate are to ensure the social, emotional, and physical well being of students, which includes equitable access to mental health services, comprehensive school safety planning and implementation, and strong character education.
Our capacity to ensure access for undocumented students continue to be problematic, particularly in the area of having equal access to higher education with the charging of out-of-state tuition.
I feel that school safety can best be maintained by trained law enforcement versus armed teachers.

Every student safely prepared for life, college and career, and to meaningfully contribute to their communities. Create a system of quality instruction to increase literacy rates for all children. Create a system of behavior supports that will reduce disproportionality in expulsion.
