Parent, experienced educator and visionary community leader
I am a lifelong educator who has taught English as a second language, STEM focusing on hands-on science, & truant boys. I work as Director of Community Engagement for Montgomery College & previously with the County Executive. I know Montgomery County very well. I’ve been a leader on closing the achievement gap & in my local PTA. I’m an MCPS parent & Latina immigrant who understands our changing county. We have a great school system and a thriving diverse community. I want to bring my educational and county-wide community experience to our school system to provide excellent educational opportunities for all students. We must have the highest expectations for all our students and provide a rigorous curriculum at all levels so students graduate ready for college and good jobs. We must meet the needs of all of our students and be accountable for our results. Your vote will help me bring my talent and skills to the Board of Education to help our all of our students thrive.
