My children have each been PISD students since Kindergarten. Our family has experienced growth in the district when PISD expanded from its third campus, Folsom Elementary to now. I have spent the last eight years volunteering on five campuses, getting to know students, parents, staff and administrators. Equally valuable, I have become familiar with the processes and systems that PISD relies on to provide an exemplary experience for all.
I realize how important preparation, organization, readiness and communication are as we are poised to dramatically grow in the near future. My heartfelt goal is to help PISD maintain its focus on the highest quality education, character development and positive impact the changes will undoubtedly have on our children. I am honored to serve as a PISD Board member.
