Dear Neighbors, Family & Friends:
I am pleased to announce that I am running for School Board. I want to be your voice in ensuring Milwaukee Public Schools (MPS) develops forward-thinking solutions to our budget, creates innovative programs for our children and supports policies that increase student achievement. We must strengthen community engagement to propel our students into a bright future. As a parent of an MPS student, as a volunteer in MPS classroom, as an adviser working with teachers and administrators, and as a connector for the business community I have seen first-hand the real issues impacting our schools. It is out of that concern for our children that I decided to step up to the challenge and run for School Board. District 3 and all of the MPS deserves leadership that understands the needs of the students, parents, teachers and our community to allocate resources that will effectively impact student achievement.
There is no better gift we can offer our children than a quality education. When elected to the Milwaukee Public School Board, I will represent you as a parent and I will advocate for our community ensuring the curriculum, governance, policies, and administration reflect our values and make sure the needs of all of our children come first. I would be honored to have your support.

I am not a politician, I am a mother committed to my community and dedicated to youth.
As a member of the Milwaukee Public School board I plan to build:
- Transparency: Provide greater transparency by bringing information directly to the community and to respond with clarity reflecting the needs and goals of our community.
- Empowerment: Investing in our students, parents and teachers rights to participate in the determination of policies that meets the needs of District 3.
- Uplift: Advocate for building an inclusive school culture that respects diversity and the social-emotional needs of both the teacher and the students.
I am committed to listening session with parents, students, and members of the community, seeking their input on developing a quality education for every MPS student. I would like to place an emphasis on students as they are often voiceless in this equation.
I am committed to listening to employees of the district as their concerns and ideas must be addressed to establish the best educational culture for our youth.
I am committed to collaborating with other board members to ensure that we set policies that meet the needs of the 5 Priorities of Success Model; however, I will press that this model includes feedback from parents, students, teachers and members of the community at all levels.
I am committed to working with leaders across the community to redefine “success” for MPS students. Standardized tests should not be the main indicator of performance.
