I am running for the Bakersfield City School Board Trustee Area 3 because I know that I can be an effective advocate for my children and the families in my community. I believe that public education provides hope and my platform includes advocating for social justice, arts and higher education.
Change in public education is usually slow and painful. However, at this moment in history, long-held traditions in education are all being turned on their head. We find ourselves with an opportunity to make things not just compliant but to make them better. In a time when we are reimagining the schools my children attend, I am eager to have meaningful input and amplify voices in our community.
