I am a candidate for the Seattle Education Board of Directors and I ask for your vote!
My five siblings and I were raised in the Central Area, now called the Leschi neighborhood.
I am a graduate of Seattle Public Schools and have completed my Baccalaureate Degree in Education, Public Policy and Procedure from Ever Green State College. Currently, I am enrolled in the MBA Program at the University of Phoenix.
I am currently employed as a Family Support Worker with the Seattle Public School District #1 for the past thirteen years.
My past leadership experience includes serving as Vice President of the Education Support Department (Para’s), chairperson of the Program Leadership Team for the Family Support Workers department, member of the Building Leadership Team, and department representative for RA, WEA and NEA Delegate. Currently I serve as chairperson for the Seattle Classified Organizing Team (SCOT) who was just recently selected to participate in the NEA Engagement Organizing Training in Washington DC, the only team of ESPs’ chosen in the country.
I am running as a candidate because as an ESP I don’t feel that we are shown the respect as professionals that we deserve. Our collective voices are being greatly diminished as education professionals.
I ask for your vote to be the next ESP elected to the SEA Board of Directors!
