I am running for the SPS Board because I want to serve my community and use my skills and experience to make our community a better place. The public school system has a dramatic impact on working families and is often a key resource for struggling families to have the opportunity to succeed. The more disadvantaged a family is financially or educationally, the more they depend on the school system for help. Still, this voice is often missing from the school board. I believe I can be a voice for these families.
