Qualifications

Why are you running for this office?

As an educator and community servant, I’ve always had the desire to play a significant role in supporting the academic programming and overall positive development of students. This has been evidenced during my career as a teacher and administrator, as well as through my volunteerism and service at Humble ISD schools and with other Humble area organizations. My desire to seek election to the Board of Trustees is not just by chance or for political gain. It’s something that has developed over time and comes from a genuine desire to effectuate positive change in the school environment. Additionally, with the challenge’s education will certainly face, due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, it will become even more critical to have both an educator’s perspective and voice at the table.

A candidate's personal moral values should not be relevant when considering a candidacy for elective office.
