Official Candidate Statement
My 20 years of teaching experience at Saddleback College has shown me the “results” from the Saddleback Valley Unified School District system. As part of a family of educators, I value quality education. My child currently attends a school within the Saddleback Valley Unified School District.
I know both she and all students in our district receive an outstanding education from highly skilled, dedicated teachers. Successful Saddleback students continually mention the teachers in SVUSD who have inspired and mentored them.
Given the educational funding realities in California, I will ensure the District responsibly maintains its support in areas that most directly impact students.
We need to build partnerships with parents, businesses, cities and educators to greater support our students. SVUSD deserves the best leadership to ensure student achievement in academics now and to prepare them for life’s challenges.
My experience of directly working with college administration paired with leadership positions I’ve held make me a uniquely qualified candidate for our school board. I’m honored to be endorsed by both the Saddleback Valley Educators Association and the California School Employees Association.
I ask for your vote on November 6 so that together we can continue developing the best schools for our neighborhood.
