Why did you choose to live in CFISD?
We chose CFISD because of its reputation, its proximity to work, church and family.
Are you currently a CFISD volunteer? If so, what school(s)?
Have you been a CFISD volunteer in the past (include years)?
List your participation in CFISD school and/or district parent clubs, business partnerships and/or committees.
Include any other areas in which you have supported CFISD not included in previous question.
List Cy-Fair organizations in which you currently participate, including offices held.
Considering your skills and talents, what positive contribution would you make as a member of the Board of Trustees?
I would be a member who represents the community with an open mind without talking down to or dismissing the concerns of students, parents, faculty and staff (and the greater CFISD community). I take a pragmatic approach to decision making and believe in transparency when it comes to public entities. When it comes to budget, I will work to maintain fiscal responsibility.
What are the responsibilities of the Board of Trustees?
To ensure the district is moving forward in a positive direction.
To adopt policies that provide the framework for how the district operates.
To hire and evaluate the superintendent.
Additionally, the board will approve budgets and make determinations on when to build new campuses.
What role do positive trustee relations on the Board play in affecting student success?
The board should continuously evaluate progress toward goals, by meeting with the superintendent and reviewing district reports. Goals and markers of success should be measured against the district's overall philosophy, mission and vision statements as outlined and adopted by the board.
What critical challenges face the district, and what are possible solutions to address those issues?
There are many issues that I’ve seen parents express in recent board meetings. The concerns seem to stem from the need for more transparency and willingness of the board/administration to listen. I am a person willing to listen. A recent hot-topic has been parents’ concern that the principles of critical race theory are finding their way into the schools’ curriculum. If given the opportunity, I will be a voice against the principles espoused by CRT.
