Support Heidi's Re-Election to the Palo Alto Unified School District School Board in 2016!

It has been a great honor to serve the Palo Alto community since 2012 as an elected Trustee of the Palo Alto Unified School District.  Over the past four years I've consistently been impressed with the district's commitment to providing the highest quality education to every student, every day.  

Palo Alto is passionate about education.  Just come to any School Board meeting and you’ll find committed parents, teachers, and community members discussing hot-button issues from student achievement and student stress, enrollment predictions, literacy and mathematics, and innovative teaching and learning in the classroom.

I share that passion and have dedicated the last ten years to working in the field of education while also raising my two children. As a teacher, parent, and educational advocate, I have learned how diverse and underfunded our educational system is in the State of California. 

PAUSD needs experienced School Board members who understand trends in education reform, complexities of educational funding, and how to tackle difficult issues around enrollment fluctuations, educational budget priorities, construction bond programs, and the ongoing challenge of integrating high academic achievement with social, intellectual, and ethical learning.

I invite you to join me in creating a vision for Palo Alto as a model school district in California: one that values inclusivity and diversity, collaboration and individual achievement.  Together, we can nurture the next generation of great thinkers, innovators, and leaders.     

With your help, I will continue to work hard on behalf of families, teachers, and, most importantly, the remarkable students in our community.

    Congratulations to our 492 Paly Vikings and 509 Gunn Titans who graduated this year! Board members alternate attending our high school graduations each year and this time around, I got to shake hands with the Viking graduating class of 2016.  It was a fabulous and emotional event, as always, with great music and inspiring student speeches.  I was also honored to attend Jordan Middle School's promotion ceremonies, along with a visit to Hoover and Barron Park's promotions as well.  Our students work very hard and are ready for their next adventures!
