I'm ready to Run! 

A balanced voice for Cambridge children.

I am pleased to announce that I am running for re-election for the Cambridge School Committee. 


It has been a privilege and joy to serve you over the past year and a half. Thank you for trusting me with the city's greatest asset, our children's future. 


In my first term, I've learned that the biggest need for our school district is Committee Members who are devoted to policy making that supports the whole child and meets the needs of ALL of our students. This has been my commitment to students, families, teachers, and our administration.   


In a short amount of time, I have been able to move important work forward that will impact the district for many years to come. In my first term, I have: 


  • Expanded access to free feminine-hygiene products to ALL schools, 

  • Led a no suspension policy for vulnerable k-2nd graders,

  • Spearheaded district-wide visioning process to replace outdated plans,

  • Started vital planning efforts to address increased enrollment in our schools because of housing development and a baby boom in the city. 


Because of your support, I'm able to do this work! As November draws near, I look forward to engaging you on how we can continue to move policies that meet the needs of ALL children.
