My Top 3 Priorities

  • Provide world-class opportunities for students by creating new partnerships and by leveraging our public and community resources to make sure all kids can access music, art, sports, and other enrichment activities.
  • Make schools hubs of health and wellness, including safe routes to school, school-based health centers to increase access to care, farm-to-fork nutrition and nutrition education, mindfulness, and appropriate technology use.
  • Develop college and career readiness pathways that reflect our students’ range of skills, aptitudes, and interest.
