Our Choice for EUHSD.
Dear Escondido Voters,
It has been the honor of my professional career to serve you on the Escondido Union High School District Board of Trustees.
When I joined this board in 2013, I gave the following speech to my fellow board members. While a lot has changed in the seven years since then, my passion and dedication to serving Escondido remains:
“I am that girl who 20 years later has a compelling desire to give back to the same district that helped me believe in myself and prepare me for a world full of possibilities and hope. While I may not have the same background as many of you in this room tonight, I am a shining example of this district and the exceptional work you are doing for countless students who walk through the doors every morning. This Board values innovation and 21st Century learning so that every student will reach their full potential. I am here to say thank you and to ask for the opportunity to have a seat at the table so that I may serve."
I have done my absolute best to be a board member for all of Escondido. I have learned a lot, grown a lot and been able to accomplish some incredible things for our community. While we certainly have challenging times ahead of us. I consider it a privilege to continue being able to serve. I would be honored to have your vote.
