As a Board member with school site experience, both as a classroom teacher and site principal, I bring a unique set of skills to the AADUSD Board. Currently, I serve as the Director of Curriculum and Instruction for a nearby school district. As a mother of four who all graduated from the Acton-Agua Dulce Unified School District, I firmly support the District’s vision. I have seen firsthand the changes that have occurred since serving on the Board for the past 8 months. The Superintendent’s vision of recognizing the ability and potential of each and every student gives a sense of purpose and direction to the work we do. I believe all levels of a school system should work together to continually strive for excellence. I am proud to be a servant leader to the AADUSD community.
