There Shouldn't Be An Opportunity Gap
Every Child has the Right to an Education
When our children don't feel safe, productive and seen they are being denied that right
Advance the Fight for Equity
Reduce class sizes, improve our schools functionality, and expand services that make their students’ lives safer and more stable.
Investing in programs and resources that parents and teachers are telling us are most important to students
Rigorous Academics and Career and Technical Education
Calibrating our standards so that students are compelled to grow but are not frustrated and overwhelmed by the process.
Integrating real world skills into every curriculum.
Addressing chronic absenteeism without punishing parents or children
Teachers and Staff
Focusing on finding solutions to the dramatic revenue loss suffered in the wake of the 2008 Great Recession.
Prioritizing Licensed and Non-Licensed staff in budgeting decisions.
Prioritizing those who directly affect students on a daily basis in policy and decision making.
"I don't just care about our schools; I care about every person in them."
I understand the challenges our children are facing when they enter the job market today. I sit on a board that provides workforce re-training for those seeking meaningful employment right here in Las Vegas.
I also understand the frustrations of parents and educators in their fight to ensure that the needs of all our children are met; I have been an ally and an advocate, helping to communicate their frustrations at the school, state, and federal level and enact meaningful change for over 20 years.
Our Children Can Thrive
Today, thousands of people all over Clark County will wake up with the intent of sending their children to our public schools with the hope that they will be seen.
But every day there are more and more barriers to this happening.
Every child in the Clark County School District should have the same access to a high-quality public education – no matter where they live, the color of their skin, or how much their parents make.
We can put the needs of our parents and students before those of individual school board trustees.
We can show our Nevada public-school teachers, paraprofessionals, and school staff that we respect them for the professionals they are.
We can go from surviving to thriving.
