Every decision I make as a board member will be focused on one goal: excellent outcomes for every single student. I will bring all of my experience - as a K12 teacher, education policy advocate, organizer, and business leader - to my role on the board. I will work closely with students, families, teachers, school leaders, district staff, community members, and citywide stakeholders to mend the divides that have allowed politics to get in the way of progress.
I'm running to represent District 1 on the OUSD Board of Directors and to restore the promise of public education for Oakland students and families. I'm running to ensure our educators, school leaders, and schools have everything they need to be successful in achieving that goal. And I'm running to ensure our district's leaders put all of our talent and resources to good use.
Oakland is an inclusive, vibrant, and optimistic community with a long history of fighting for racial and economic justice. It's why I love this community and am proud to call it home. As a lifelong public education advocate, I believe Oakland deserves a school system that reflects who we are and puts our values to work ensuring every child receives a great education.
I hope you'll join this campaign as we work together for Oakland.
