Term:  2020-2024

37 years ago, I moved to Rainbow with my husband. We built a home, raised a son and have lived an idyllic life in our beautiful valley. A while back, I retired from 22 years of teaching and decided to become more in involved in my community. When the opportunity rose to become a Vallecitos School Board Trustee, I decided to answer the call. It is with great pride that I assume this position. The experience I bring includes a bachelor's degree in Gerontology, multi-subject K-8 Calif. Teaching credential, a master's in education, Board Secretary for the Fallbrook Community Center and a vast array of life experience. As a school board trustee, I will advocate for policies and opportunities that enhance the educational experience of our students and teachers.
