Over the past eight years, I have proudly served the voters of the Carlsbad Unified School District (CUSD). During this time, my priorities have been to build partnerships and to make responsible decisions for our students, parents, and educators. I helped to increase student achievement, improve safety in our district, and encouraged long term strategic planning to promote accountability and student goals.
My experience as a longtime member of the education community has informed my leadership on the Carlsbad School Board for my last two-terms in office. I have advocated for responsible decisions which support strong student achievement, fiscal stability, and citizen oversight. I have also led the charge to provide safe storage of firearms in our community in order to create a safer environment for our children on and off campus.
Developed 3-year strategic plans to address
The last few years have presented many challenges to navigate, but CUSD has continued providing an extraordinary education in an inspiring environment for Carlsbad students. We have worked collaboratively to create balance and establish a clear vision that continues our successful progress in the district. This responsible leadership has continued to have high expectations for quality education that supports strong student outcomes. We are also working together to ensure safety in our schools and to create innovative classrooms that are sustainable into the future.
My priority is to maintain strong organizational structure that empowers the superintendent, district administrators, and staff to manage the schools and appropriately implement the school board’s direction. In addition, I strive to create an environment that allows the teachers to effectively provide a high-quality education in a thriving learning environment for our students. Above all, I commit to being inclusive and to supporting the needs and concerns of all stakeholders towards the benefit of our students and staff.
My experience and dedication to public service and to our public education in the CUSD has been made possible with the collective efforts of many partnerships forged with the Carlsbad community throughout the years. I want to thank all for entrusting me to collaboratively lead to accomplish our shared mission. With your support, I look forward to continuing our progress in strengthening our district and inspiring our students to become lifelong learners.
