As the pandemic unfolds, we are forced to scrutinize every social construct from the way we work, the way our children go to school, to the way we govern. This year, with Covid-19 at the forefront of school decision-making, we need parents seated on the board who reflect the families they serve.
Board diversity is a priority of mine. I bring the voice of a mother who has a student with disabilities. My child, Dorothy, qualifies for special education and has been attending Pacific Grove Unified Schools for six years.
Each year, I become more involved in our district. I serve as Secretary on Forest Grove Elementary School Site Council which works towards closing achievement gaps for socio-economically disadvantaged students, foster youth, English learners and children with disabilities. I brought the Be SMART Safe Gun Storage and the LGTBQ+ Pride Month resolutions to our board, which passed unanimously.
Being a 16-year Pacific Grove resident, a college graduate, a homeowner, a business owner, and an involved parent has shown me the central role that public schools play in our community.
I would be honored to have your vote for a seat at the table to improve and continue the legacy of Pacific Grove Unified School District.
