I believe in quality education for all students, no matter their ability, income, or life experience. I believe that education is the one free opportunity we all have that can lift us above our circumstances.
Why do you love your career?
I love my career because it is never boring. Every day is different with interesting and sometimes unbelievable things happening. Unbelievable in a good way. I get to see children do things they never thought possible. I get to see them grow up as if they were my own. This is very rewarding.
I am a developer. I see opportunities in people and circumstances and take advantage of them. I thrive on helping other people grow and learn. I surround myself with people who are willing to move forward and take risks.
What do you enjoy spending money on?
I like spending money on my children and family. I love to do spontaneous things such as take day trips to San Francisco and Monterey. And, of course, I like to shop.
