Why I'm Running

SAISD has made amazing progress over the last eight years.  The district moved from an F rating to a B rating, a record number of our students are excelling academically, and we’ve created a number of new schools and innovative programs to provide students and families with high quality choices.  


I am running for reelection to the SAISD School Board in District 1 to ensure the district maintains this positive momentum and to keep the board focused on student achievement.  Despite the progress, our work is not done!  I know that our kids will never reach their potential and our city’s economy will not flourish unless we provide all our students with a world class education. As our community recovers from COVID-19, stable leadership is critical to ensuring that the changes we’ve implemented are sustainable.


I’m a former teacher, I grew up in San Antonio, and I’m an SAISD parent. During my time in the classroom, I taught students that faced tremendous challenges but succeeded based on hard work, persistence, and creative problem-solving.  As a teacher, I saw first-hand the advantages of policies focused on student achievement.  In my role on the school board, I have continued to apply the same strategies my students used to ensure that SAISD makes student-centered, transparent decisions that will improve academic outcomes for kids.


My wife and I are raising our family in SAISD with the confidence that our daughters will receive an excellent education that will prepare her for college and beyond.  I am committed to working tirelessly every day for kids, to restore excellence in our schools, and to be a thought-leader and coalition-builder who fights for policies to positively impact the lives of SAISD students. I will continue listening to your priorities, and I am committed to putting kids first in every decision that the board makes.


I would be honored to have your continued support!
