My Top 3 Priorities

  • Ensuring that students have a safe and nurturing school environment.
  • Making sure all district staff are provided quality professional development opportunities that allow them to stay current with educational practices and student health and well being.
  • Ensure that district monies are spent in an accountable and responsible way to with a focus on the needs of students.




I am currently a board member and am seeking re-election. I chose to run for school board again because I want to continue being involved in the district and contribute to the educational opportunities of all of the students in Thermalito.


 I have recently retired, after 37 years, from Butte County Office of Education where I worked with parents, educators, and administrators throughout the county. I am currently doing volunteer work partnering with representatives of Butte COE, Glenn COE, and Butte College.


During the many years that my four children attended Thermalito schools I was an active site council member as well as being a member of other parent involvement committees, helping with school functions, driving for field trips and sports events, and fundraising for 8th grade promotion needs.


I feel that I am a great choice for Thermalito Governing Board.
