I am a teacher and have been working in education since graduating high school in 1995. I began my career in education as a Para-Professional, transitioning to a Computer Lab Technology Specialist, and finally becoming a teacher. I have taught at Eden Area ROP, Hayward High School through the ROP, and Hayward Adult School. I am a graduate of Chabot and CSU Hayward.
I am currently pursuing my Master’s Degree in Education, option Urban Teacher Leadership at CSU East Bay. I referee basketball for grades 3-8, middle and high school, and college games. I know the community of Hayward.
Hayward community’s voice needs to be heard at the board meetings. We need to get HUSD to a working relationship where students are the primary focus when making decisions. I will advocate for students, parents, and teachers. I feel school board members need to be Trustees of, and act as, the check-and-balance system of HUSD. Building a culture of success is a task I am happy to take on for our students, our parents, our community, and for the success of our school district.
