As a San Bruno native with two young children, I have a vested
interest in making sure my children, and yours, have access to a well-rounded
curriculum, enrichment programs and exceptional teachers that will help them
succeed in high school and beyond. As a daughter of an immigrant who reaped the
benefits of the public school system, I understand and value the need for
equity and access for all.
Over the last two years, I have
been actively involved in helping to enhance our schools. When my oldest
daughter was in kindergarten, I was elected to serve on the board of
Bruno Education Foundation (SBEF). I jumped at the opportunity to use my Marketing degree to help
rebrand SBEF, create a new website and streamline communication to our
community. Also, it just felt good to know that I was helping to improve the
educational experiences of my children and yours. In the last two years, the
visibility of the organization has increased due to our communications strategy
and has led to a broader donor base.
I have served on the LCAP (Local Control and Accountability Plan) and the Portrait of a Graduate committees to better understand and help set priorities for
curriculum and student achievement so that our Parkside graduates are ready for
high school. I was also asked to participate in the interview panel for our new
superintendent and serve on the "Return to School Committee". I take
all of these roles seriously and am happy to serve my community.
Like many of you, I see such
potential for growth and development within our school communities. However,
this historically has been hindered by a lack of communication and community
outreach from our district leadership and infighting from our board of
trustees. The main problem that I see is that people are not prioritized. Not
our students. Not our teachers. And not the greater community.
Right now, we have a unique opportunity to make a change for the
better. We have two board seats up for election and a new superintendent who is
energized and excited for change. With me on the board of trustees, you will
have a person who is not afraid to roll up their sleeves and do the hard work.
Not afraid to speak out when our district is not prioritizing the needs of its
most important assets: our students and teachers. I am ready and willing to
fight for our children and to push for positive initiatives that tear down an
outdated system and build a network of schools that are modern and
With me on the San Bruno Park School Board of Trustees, you will have someone who puts people first. Someone who
will prioritize our kids, our teachers and our community.
