      As a certified public accountant (CPA), I bring financial experience to the board that would be useful in maintaining fiscal responsibility in the budget-making process Additionally, as a former CFISD board member, I bring insight into high expectations and standards for student success.

      What are the responsibilities of the Board of Trustees?

      The Board of Trustees set policies to govern the school district, hire and evaluate the superintendent, adopt the budget, and provide a listening ear to the community. 

      What role do positive trustee relations on the Board play in affecting student success?

      Positive trustee relations play an important role in student success. Trustees with positive relations are able to focus significant attention on ensuring high standards and expectations for student success are sustained throughout the district.

      What critical challenges face the district, and what are possible solutions to address those issues?

      Too many students in the district are not reading on grade level. This challenge must be addressed head-on so that our parents, teachers, and taxpayers will continue to have confidence in CFISD's reputation. Increasing parental involvement in student education, in addition to greater attention to reading practices, is paramount.
