Please support my candidacy for Albany School Board! I have been a parent activist in the district for many years, a volunteer at Ocean View Elementary, and I lived in UC Village for seven years. I love Albany's diversity and want to ensure that our district lives up to its obligation to provide an equal education for all.
I am proud to be running with two other great candidates: Clementina Duron and Brian Doss . The three of us are ready to work together to bring much-needed diversity to the board and to rebuild trust between the board, community, and teachers.

Why I'm raising money
I am asking for help to cover the $980 it costs to file for candidacy in Alameda County, along with printing costs for flyers and campaign signs.
Here's my official candidate statement:
As a member of this community for 10 years and a longstanding PTA volunteer, I am deeply invested in the betterment of Albany public schools. My children attend Albany Middle School and Ocean View Elementary, where I have served on the Site Council. Because I believe in investing in our schools, I was also involved in the YES on Measure LL parcel tax campaign.
I have great respect for the challenges teachers face and the work needed to give children a foundation for success. I have devoted my career to teaching and researching in a public university because I believe public education can provide opportunity for all.
I will work to improve communication and trust between my board colleagues, parents, teachers, and administrators. We must work collaboratively if we want to improve outcomes for all students and ensure that all students in our diverse district feel valued.
I will use my professional expertise in public finance to shine a light on the critical budgetary decisions we face, and to ensure that students and teachers have the resources they need in the classroom.
I am proud to be endorsed by the Albany Teachers Association.
