QUALIFIED TO SERVE

I am running for the Orange County School Board Chair position because I believe my experience working with students, parents, teachers, school support staff, coaches, athletic directors, athletic trainers, debate coaches, administrators, district personnel from the 1st through the 9th floor, and the surrounding government/business communities has prepared me to serve Orange County in this important capacity. The School Board is responsible for holding the Superintendent accountable for creating a positive and productive learning environment at every school throughout our district.
