College and Career Readiness
Our children deserve to leave our schools college and career ready. No matter if our students have the goal of going to college or into the trade industry, we must ensure that they are prepared. This means that our schools need to have classroom options of CTE courses and A-G courses. Being a parent to three boys, I have one child that went to college, law school, and is now a teacher. Another child is in communications and will be coming home after graduation to go into a sheet metal apprenticeship. I also have a son who is studying physics at the Santa Rosa Junior College. All three have taken different paths to find their career choice, and to follow their passion. That is what I want for all of our children! For me, it’s personal. As a parent and as your elected SCOE Board Trustee, I will continue to be a voice on behalf of the best education outcomes for our children and families.
