About Me
I am deeply committed to the vision that public schools will prepare all students, regardless of socio-economic status or home-language, to graduate from high school prepared to excel in college and career.

"“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be?""
