Too often families are forced to move, transport their children across the district, rely on lotteries or invest in private schools to ensure their children get the best education. This is a disservice to our families, our school district, and our communities.  I am running to expand access so that every cluster, every classroom, and every child has access to a high-quality K-12 education.

Two Backpacks


I believe every child deserves a quality education.

Race and place should have no bearing on access to a high-quality education that creates opportunities for growth and development.  Yet, they impact our student’s ability to succeed each day. Our achievement rates in math and literacy range from 3% to 67%--we can do better.  I will work tirelessly to advance policies that improve the educational experience for every child in our district. I am committed to ensuring every child graduates ready for the world.

Teacher Assisting a Student


I believe every classroom should provide a safe and supportive learning environment.

Educators and students deserve to be treated with dignity and respect. We demonstrate that by prioritizing their wellbeing and equipping them with the resources they need to thrive in our changing world.  Equipping educators and students with the technology they need to evolve with our changing world.  I am committed to investing in resources that improve the overall health and wellbeing of our educators and students. 

Ecology Gardening Tour


I believe every cluster has its own unique blend of talents, gifts and offerings.

They each have their unique challenges as well. Community members know what needs to be done to meet this moment and their voice cannot be ignored. With the right support, we can design cluster-specific solutions that increase student success while in APS and beyond.
