My responsibility as a BOUSD Trustee is to continue to put the kids of Brea first in every decision I make, taking into consideration the values, beliefs and the priorities of the community and goals the board has set for the district. I believe board members have the responsibility to oversee and educate the Whole Child; one entitled to be healthy, safe, engaged, supported and challenged while being fiscally responsible.

My personal responsibility as a trustee is to continue to…

  • Be a liaison between you, the stakeholders, and BOUSD
  • Ensure the current plans to secure our campuses are a priority and are completed
  • Provide every child with a safe and respectful learning environment
  • Prioritize the mental health of Brea’s students
  • Focus on student achievement and adopt/implement policies that will meet the needs of our students
  • Advocate for BOUSD students at the local, state and national level
  • Work as a California School Board Association Delegate
  • Set the vision and goals for the district
  • Hire and evaluate the superintendent on a regular basis
  • Adopt and oversee a fiscally sound annual budget
  • Manage the collective bargaining process for employees of the district and respect and support strong, positive relationships between the unions and BOUSD
  • Improve transparency in the community by being approachable and genuine, keeping open lines of communication between the teachers, administrators, staff, community and the Board
  • Provide teachers with the training and supplies that they need to do their job of keeping students engaged and interested in learning
  • Be an honest leader, who is not being afraid to make the hard decisions
