I will be fair-minded, soliciting and respecting diverse opinions to help guide the district. Empathy. For the best community outcomes, we need to listen (and be heard) with empathy.

I am a mother of two students in BSD, a medical doctor from China, a first generation American, and an advocate for students, and I have deep concerns about our BSD schools.

During the pandemic, BSD fell short in serving its students and meeting its obligation to members of our community.  Our district is at a crucial infection point, with decisions to make that will shape our future.  I led a two-year campaign to improve student welfare that resulted in HB1272.  I'll bring that same passion and dedication to the Board ensuring that every public dollar is utilized effectively to maximize education outcomes for students.

I'll engage our whole community to: 1) Select a world-class superintendent. 2) Prioritize the academic and social-emotional recovery of students. 3) Maintain a healthy and safe school environment for all students. 4) Ensure our curriculum reflects the diverse culture of our local community, against division and confusion.

I ask for your vote to heal - and once again celebrate - our district. Endorsed by: Jenifer Robertson, Council Member; Chad Magendanz, Former Ranking Member of the House Education Committee; Valeri Makam and Leo Novsky, former BSD Board Candidates, and 400 + local parents
