I am running for a seat on the Buffalo School Board representing the West District to implement progressive policy ideas that lead to opportunities for all students and to increase funding and academic resources for students and parents of the West District and the Buffalo Public School district. If elected I will work with board colleagues, district administrators, parents, and teachers to develop specific policy proposals that address the high poverty needs of all students. I am running on a platform of justice and equity. We need our black and brown students to stop being suspended unfairly and at the same time we also need safer schools. We need to continue supporting students who might face greater chances of discrimination for issues like gender identity or a learning disability. I will serve as an advocate for English language learners (ELL), students with disabilities, the homeless population, students of color, and LGBTQ students, and other marginalized groups. As a professor of education who recently specifically trained people pursuing superintendent, principal positions, and other high administrative roles I have a unique understanding and perspective of how school administration should be operating to best serve the children and the community and not just themselves.
