Parent/Community Volunteer/ Engineering Leader/Dance Teacher
I am a Cupertino resident for past 16 years with two kids in Cupertino schools and an active parent volunteer (Project cornerstone, PTA Reflections). I am a dance teacher for kids for the past 15 years and a former Google engineer. I am passionate about providing wholesome education for kids that mix liberal arts and STEM skills. I have administrative experience having served on the CUSD citizen advisory committee and as City of Cupertino Commissioner.
I am the founder of a community led “CUSD parent focus group” which organizes and bring parent feedback to the board. I have also led multiple grass root student enrichment activities -- Youth for Change and Student Buddy program-- that provide leadership and educational experiences to students.
Currently we have two main challenges facing CUSD -- Distance learning effectiveness and decreased funding. We need new ideas and thinking to overcome these. If elected to the board, I will strongly champion and implement increased parent involvement in CUSD decisions, bring out of box ideas for raising funding base and sponsor community led learning enrichment to supplement distance learning. I respectfully ask for your support to represent you at CUSD board and be the voice of kids and parents.
