My goal is to create a public education system that truly meets the educational needs of all students, and prepares all San Francisco students for our 21st century city. I have seen first-hand how our current model doesn’t work for so many of our students. Schools need to focus on implementing learning practices that close the equity gap; too often, our segregated schools widen it instead. I have spent the past decade advocating for students. I’ve attended hundreds of district Board of Education meetings and committee meetings. I'm ready to make the move to the other side of the table: I want to do more than comment in committees and at board meetings. I want to ensure that we consider and support our most vulnerable students and families in every decision, resolution, and guideline.
