Our Children, Our Community, Our Future
The election did not turn out the way we had hoped, but I want to take this moment to thank you all for your support and encouragement over the course of this race.
To those who donated to the campaign, put a sign in your yard, canvassed and knocked on doors with us, helped with events, waved signs, made telephone calls, sent words of support, or however you helped us, you have my heartfelt thanks.
Although we are disappointed with the outcome, I will continue my commitment to providing a quality and equitable education within our schools, and will continue advocating for our children, our community and our future.
My passion for New Orleans public schools is deeply rooted in my experience in this city as an educator and mental health provider, roles that have strengthened my resolve that quality education is a significant, fundamental human right that must be accessible to every child.
I will work to:
Ensure that each student is served based on their individualized educational needs, while also receiving emotional support.
Foster engagement with parents, teachers, administrators, and support staff to achieve student success.
Ensure fiscal accountability and transparency, rebuilding community trust regarding district resources.
My background and service as an educator, licensed clinical social worker and community and civic leader uniquely qualifies me for this important role. As a servant-leader with deep community relationships and a strong track record of advocacy and impact, I will make tough, well-reasoned, solution-driven decisions focused on student success.
As an Orleans Parish School Board member, I will work daily to ensure that every student has access to high quality, equitable education with the support and resources needed for them to reach their full potential. I look forward to working in collaboration with the community to secure a quality education for all our students. I would be honored to serve you. I ask for your support and your vote!
