“Kodomo no tame ni” (For the sake of the children) is a Japanese-American phrase that guided my immigrant grandparents and American-born parents through overcoming hardship to make better lives for their children. As your Trustee, I would bring this value to the Fremont Union High School District Board to keep our District a beacon of excellence.
I will work to: champion equity and quality learning for all students; enhance resources and professional development for teachers and staff; promote the social emotional health and well being of all students; and maintain high fiscal effectiveness and resource development to provide quality business functions and support to schools.
I bring over 25 years of nonprofit executive management experience; ethical nonprofit governance expertise; accomplishments in producing innovative programs with successful outcomes; and leadership skills developed through the American Leadership Forum and Harvard University School of Business – Strategic Perspectives in Nonprofit Management. I have served on two Santa Clara County Commissions and on several nonprofit boards.
I have actively volunteered in my children’s elementary, middle and high schools and have worked with social service, faith based and criminal justice organizations focused on youth. I have broad public policy experience on early childhood education, substance abuse, mental health, juvenile justice, domestic violence/human trafficking, poverty prevention, diversity and equity. I will bring this unique expertise and experience to also champion social emotional health and well being for our students. I respectfully ask for your vote.
