My family moved to Brentwood in 2002 and my three children attended BUSD schools. I began teaching in BUSD in 2005 and remained in the district until 2013, when I took a one-year contract teaching English at Liberty High School. I have coached volleyball at Edna Hill Middle School since 2006, and I am now an adjunct professor at Los Medanos Community College teaching English and a Licensed Real Estate Agent.
As a teacher with BUSD, I volunteered to serve on the Teacher Liaison Committee, or bargaining team. We worked with the district and board to balance the budget, create an effective Professional Development schedule and keep class sizes as low as possible. I plan to continue that work as a board member. I am frugal, analytical and determined, and I have dedicated my life to being an educator.
As a board member, I will represent students, parents, teachers and the community. I will promote and support decisions that reinforce high standards for students and I will be a voice for our professionals - the teachers.
