I have been a long-time Pleasanton resident have been in the community for many years and mother of two kids. Both my kids have attended or are attending Pleasanton school.
I understand the unique struggles of schools, parents, and kids as I have worked with all of them in my different roles as a mother, community member, and after-school provider. As an avid volunteer in schools and the community, organizer of youth workshops, Teen camps, Summer camps, and youth-adult empowerment workshops. So all in all have ample experience working with kids from a young age, teens, youth, and young adults. With my extensive experience in working with today's mental health issues through different workshops and camps, I can offer my knowledge and insight to the school board to enhance the quality of life and well-being of our kids. It gives me a perfect reason to join the PUSD school board. where I can help to bring some of my expertise into the mainstream.
My goals are to increase accountability and transparency in fiscal decisions and retain quality educators. I see the great impact my kids’ teachers had on their lives. If we can retain our staff, by understanding the needs of our teachers and staff members, we can promote and help in preserving and improving the quality of the school system. With my experience as a local business owner, I understand the complexities of school district finance. As the Area two trustee, I promise every dollar spent will be towards our children’s education.
