My Top 3 Priorities

  • As a school principal and father, it is my goal to ensure our students' safety is a top priority. In order for students to learn they need to feel safe from bullying, harassment and intrusions.
  • Students' academic growth is also an important priority. As a board member I would ensure we provide the conditions and resources to positively impact our students.
  • In order to prepare our students to become successful leaders we need to align education to the future. The future involves computer science. Each student should have a technology device to use when needed.

Dear Neighbors,

 Education is the pillar of our society. It is the key to a successful and prosperous nation. Education has a purpose in this world. It is intended to be the key that opens doors to our students. Education is the key that sees no race, skin color or socio economic level. In our society, this key can forever change lives, improve human conditions and give freedom. For these reasons I am a candidate for the School Board of Chula Vista.

As an educator, school principal and father, I am deeply grateful for the opportunities education has conceded me. I believe in the promise of public education because it has enabled me to break away from the cycle of generational poverty. In my journey of life I have been a farm worker, a school custodian, a teacher and today a school principal. Public education has granted me the opportunity to reach my dreams and to raise my family in this beautiful city of ours, Chula Vista.

Today, I am grateful for my blessings and feel it is time to give back to our community. I aspire to work with you for the benefit of our students, teachers and families. I am bringing over 15 years of experience in education and leadership to support the shared decision-making within our district. I want to work on your behalf to ensure our students continue to make strong academic growth and most importantly, I want to work on ensuring our students are safe at school.
