MY PRIORITIES

EXCELLENCE FOR ALL

  • Every child deserves an excellent, well-rounded education that prepares them for a successful life of their own choosing. 

  • We must maintain Eanes' excellence in academics, sports, and the arts. 

INCLUSION

  • Our schools must be warm, welcoming environments where all feel welcome and every member of the Eanes community is fully embraced and valued.

  • As the parent of a child being evaluated for special education, I know the hurt when your child is excluded. Our schools must be welcoming to all students and specifically devoid of racism and every other type of discrimination.

FISCAL RESPONSIBILITY

  • I will treat every tax dollar as if it were my own. 

  • I will support keeping our property taxes as low as possible, while providing for Eanes' financial future. 

  • As our district faces current budget deficits, we have to do more with less and maximize our resources, while maintaining Eanes’ excellence. I’ve done that before and I'm ready to do it again for Eanes.

RETAIN & CONTINUE TO RECRUIT THE BEST TEACHERS & LEADERS

  • Nothing has a greater impact on our children's education than an excellent teacher in the classroom and the support of strong school and district leaders. 

  • We must continue to recruit the best talent for our schools and work hard to support and retain that talent.

  • This is what I do. As the founder of a talent firm that specializes in the education sector, I understand the current teacher shortage in Texas and have spent over a decade helping public schools with talent recruitment and retention. 

INNOVATION

  • We must lean into innovation. Eanes will not remain the exceptional district that it currently is if we do not continue to innovate.

  • As an entrepreneur, I am a strong believer in piloting new ideas, learning through real-time data, tweaking along the way, and scaling out the solution once proven. The same approach can work well in education.

STUDENTS & FAMILIES FIRST

  • Schools exist first and foremost to serve the children of our community. I will always put the needs of our children above all others. 

  • I believe parents are best equipped to make the right decisions for their children and must be allowed to have a strong voice in their children's education.

BEYOND EXCELLENCE

  • We can't pursue excellence while sacrificing everything else. We have to remember our goal is to raise the next generation to lead successful, independent, thriving lives of their own choosing. We want to raise students with character, grit, and ethics.
