As we count down to the June 5 election, I am energized by the hundreds of supporters who have joined my campaign to stand up for kids!  Come and enjoy an evening with us.  I look forward to hearing what’s important to you and to sharing my vision for education in San Mateo County. 
In my 30-year career in education, I have served in many roles and at all levels of education, preschool through university.  As a Principal, School Counselor, Foster Parent, Professor and Deputy County Superintendent, my aim has always been to ensure that we are offering our very best to our kids.  All of them.  That has been my life’s work and it is why I am running for County Superintendent.
Please join us to learn more about how we can work together on behalf of our children and youth.
