Education’s always been an important part of Joe’s life.  His father was a school superintendent; his mom taught music. Joe was raised on Native American reservations and in Central America: he’s dedicated his life to understanding today’s education. 


Joe will make sure Shoreline Schools get their fair share of state school funding, ensuring we get the funds to recruit and maintain quality teachers (including more diverse teachers). His Kindering experience will help us reduce costs in our schools by making early intervention our priority. His County Council staffing experience will help us with practical aspects of reviewing policy and implementation -- much needed on our School Board. His first-hand experience comes from raising two kids through Shorecrest Schools.


Joe is your best choice for the School Board. A longtime leader with the Children's Campaign Fund, Joe was also appointed to the Governor’s Committee on Employment & Disabilities.

As the mother of two elementary age children, I know that being involved with their education is one of the most important ways to help them become their best selves. As an educator, I know no two students are identical. Ensuring that every student’s diversity of needs is recognized and supported is how we fulfill our commitment to every student’s success. As an advocate, I know having all the voices in the room is our best way to have decisions truly reflect the community.

As a board member, I will seek to improve transparency of decisions; engage students, families, educators, and community; ensure our district is equitable and inclusive in all areas; and responsibly care for our community’s financial and environmental resources so our students and community thrive and succeed together.

I would be grateful for your vote. Endorsements include: 46th District Democrats, LFP Councilmembers Phillippa Kassover and Semra Riddle.
