Having attended San Jose public schools, I know firsthand about the needs of our students. Creating a world class education system is priority #1, our students deserve to attend quality schools with amazing teachers and a county school system that continues to focus and invest in curriculum to help our children succeed.
Currently, I serve students and families as a Governing Boardmember for Mt Pleasant Schools. I have worked tirelessly with parents, teachers and community leaders to set goals and hold the district accountable for the education of students.
On the Santa Clara County Board of Education, I will continue to improve teacher development, concentrate on improving Special Education, as well as pushing policies to better support vulnerable student populations’. I will work to increase parent involvement and engagement in our county schools and classrooms. As a district we must strive for educational progress in every classroom because that is what our students deserve!
Please join teachers throughout Santa Clara County, Vice Mayor Magdalena Carrasco, Councilmember Anthony Phan, Assemblymember Ash Kalra, Senator Jim Beall, Trustee Omar Torres, parents, and community leaders in supporting my candidacy. I would be honored to have your vote.
