Active parent standing up for families across the district
I'm a mother of two PUSD students. I've lived with my husband, and two daughters in Pasadena for ten years. I'm one of those parents who doesn't leave after the bell rings. I've been an active parent volunteer at Willard Elementary School, serving on PTA Board for multiple terms as Vice President, Treasurer, Legislative Advocate. My involvement goes beyond my daughters' schools. That's why when a proposal was made to open a new charter school in 2020, I spoke up at school board to question the proposal and showed up again to praise the district leadership in their decision to start a new dual language program instead.
Limited resources can pit schools and families against each other. As a future Board member, I want to work with fellow Board members and families to unite and organize them to fight for more funding so all students benefit in an equitable way.
