My Top 3 Priorities

  • Improve communication not only within the Manteca Unified school district itself, but also between the district and communities at large.
  • Make sure that students receive instruction geared to their individualized needs no matter the form (distance learning, hybrid model or full-time instruction) that safety demands.
  • I would like to encourage greater public participation and input in school district matters.

Political Beliefs

Political Philosophy

I believe that the office of school board trustee should be nonpartisan. All board members, regardless of their political party affiliation, should be focused on the best interest of students and ways to ensure a positive work environment for teachers, administrators, and support staff. Too often, our political differences can divide us if we define ourselves in that manner. That divide makes us less effective and can interfere with our responsibility to provide students with the most  rigorous individualized learning possible. For these reasons, I strive to keep any politics out of my board discussions and decisions.
