Biographical Information

Why should people vote for you to be a School Board member?

What, if any, unique issues does the district face as a rural school district, and how will you address these unique issues?

As your school district navigates the continuing COVID-19 pandemic, what policies would you support to ensure that all students succeed educationally?

If your school district had unlimited funds, what projects to benefit students would you like to see undertaken?

I would love the opportunity to represent the voices of our district and support our teachers in their efforts of giving our children the best education possible.
When voting on any policy I will keep in mind that policies are not “one size fits all”. What works for Santa Fe, Albuquerque, and other cities may not be effective in our small community.
I would support giving parents the opportunity to make decisions on what is best for their child’s health. I would NOT support a vaccine mandate for our staff or students, as I believe those health decisions should be made by each family.
I would like to see our small class sizes stay in place, and any of our “bigger” classes shrink by adding more teachers who would then be able to provide more a personalized education to fit our students needs.
