Why are you running for the Cy-Fair ISD board of trustees?
As a parent, volunteer and public education advocate, I understand the importance of having a strong local school district. I am committed to serving our CFISD community to insure all students achieve success. I believe I have the skills, focus, commitment and heart to serve as a CFISD trustee and will work to honor the legacy of past boards while striving to prepare our district for future demands. I am passionate about public education, focus on student outcomes and believe the school board should reflect the vision and values of our community.
What experience do you have that makes you qualified to serve on the board?
I have volunteered in CFISD schools since my oldest daughter started kindergarten including mentoring at-risk students at multiple campuses. I served as chair of the CFISD Community Leadership Committee leading a diverse group of community members advocating for our district within our local community and with our elected state officials. I was the community co-chair for the 2019-2025 Long Range Planning Committee, which gave me a clear understanding of the long-term needs of our school district.
What are the most significant challenges the district faces?
The complexity of meeting the needs of 117,000+ students under the current state finance system creates a challenge for our ever-growing district.
How do you plan to address those issues?
As a trustee, I will advocate on behalf of our district for equitable and sustainable funding while working with district administration to make investments in effective programs supporting early literacy, vocational education, STEM, fine arts and others that prepare students to be successful now and in the future.
