Welcome!

Thank you for visiting my website. This website aims to help the community to learn about my work as a school board member during my 12 years. It was a privilege to serve the community in this capacity. It is a time period in my life I will never forget. There are so many students, staff and community members I would have never met if I wasn’t in this role.  The District now embarks on  a new chapter with two newly seated board members and the new board will have to learn how to collaborate and work together as a governance team. I leave the district with the highest functioning executive team the district has had in 25 years. It was hard work and leadership that got this team together. The executive team has the dedication, commitment, and leadership  to take the district to the next level.  I hope the new board holds dear my favorite belief statements from the PUSD strategic plan,” We believe in providing learning that is innovative, irresistible, creative, relevant, and rigorous.
