Cy-Fair ISD board of trustees, Position 2

Why are you running for the Cy-Fair ISD board, and why are you the best candidate?

What are the biggest issues Cy-Fair ISD is facing? How would you address them?

I believe all students deserve access to an exceptional education within our local public schools. My focus is on ensuring the district ful lls its mission of educating students. My motivation is to serve … with intelligence, integrity and compassion. If I am re-elected, I will be the most senior member of the board and will use my experience to govern e„ectively and honorably.

Lack of adequate state funding, recruitment and retention of teachers, and school safety/mental health are the three biggest issues facing CFISD. All these issues impact student achievement. As a board member, I will continue advocating for public school funding, changes in legislation impacting teachers and student safety/mental health, and stronger partnerships with parents.

I have been very e„ective at making positive changes in Cy-Fair ISD at the state and local level. I want to put parents in control of what is appropriate in schools. I have been doing it as a concerned mom for the last 2.5 years. See my website,, for how I protected CFISD’s children at school.

(1) Safety—Explore all options to comply with [House Bill] 3 (armed guards at schools). Continue to meet with Texas legislators inside and outside the district to help pass legislation. I was recently credited for my work showing data mining of mental health surveys to help pass [House Bill] 18. (2) Teacher Retention—I want to listen to feedback and take action to help.

I am running to help refocus CFISD on the academic preparation of students. As a former CFISD board member, I strongly believe that every student should be able to read for comprehension by the end of third grade. I am a CPA and the only candidate with a nancial background. I am an Army veteran and a retiree from ExxonMobil.

The large number of students not reading on grade level, and securing adequate funding from the state to ensure school programs are resourced and sta„ed e„ectively [are the biggest issues].
