I have lived in San Leandro for most of my life. After college, I returned to San Leandro and have worked in education for the past 25 years. I began as a teacher at San Leandro High School, and helped lead the Business Academy. In San Leandro, I served as site and district administration, before becoming principal of San Leandro High School. I currently serve as Superintendent of the Eden Area ROP.
These experiences have given me first-hand knowledge of the importance of education as a path to empower students to become productive and participatory members of society. I’ve also learned about the crucial role played by governing board members and how they contribute to the success of an organization.
As a trustee for the Chabot Las Positas Community College District, I will be dedicated to ensuring that our colleges provide a quality education for all of its students. Students need to be prepared for entry into careers or a four-year college. Working together, we can achieve these things to adapt to new challenges with innovative solutions. This requires leadership with experience, knowledge and passion. I believe I am up to this task and would appreciate your support.
