As a proud alumna of the Reynolds School District, I know first-hand what a dedicated and hardworking district we have. I am running to ensure that all students, regardless of their income, background and zip code experience an education that will prepare them for a world yet to be imagined. I believe that in order to prepare our students to meet the quickly evolving economic demands of the 21st century, it will require a community-centered, holistic and unconventional approach to education.

During my time serving on the Reynolds School board I have supported policies that center around our most vulnerable students, listened to the expertise of the district staff and encouraged innovative practices.

As a Board Member, I will advocate for:

  • Equitable education for all students
  • Well-being and Safety of students, their families and education professionals
  • Sustainable fiscal management for our district
  • 21st Century Education

¡Como Latina abogare para todas las comunidades del distrito escolar, para que juntos logremos el éxito!
