I am committed to all students and the larger Bloomington community.
My husband and two of our children graduated from Bloomington Public Schools. Our youngest is in high school. I was first elected to the Bloomington School Board in 2011. I have served as chair, vice-chair, clerk, and treasurer and represented the board on various committees. I am chair of the Board’s Legislative Committee, board representative to the Bloomington Public Schools Advocacy Council, and the Association of Metropolitan School Districts (AMSD).
My formal education includes a Master of Arts in Educational Leadership from Saint Mary’s University of Minnesota, a Second Licensure certificate from Hamline University in Saint Paul, Mn, and a B.A. in Foreign and Second Language Instruction from Universidad del Valle, Colombia. I am a doctoral student in the EdD in Education Leadership and Learning program at the University of Saint Thomas, with a concentration track in Learning Technology Leadership and Innovation.
My professional career includes administrative and teaching experience across various interdisciplinary education sectors. As an academic coordinator, I led teams to reach goals, managed bilingual programs and personnel development and conducted second language research and curriculum development.
I am a K-12 licensed Minnesota educator and currently teach at Saint Louis Park High School. I love teaching and looking for innovative ideas to bring to my classroom. I care about my students and hold high expectations for them and myself.
I am an eager learner who constantly seeks professional and personal development opportunities. I am a global learner and a global educator.
I have broad experience volunteering in the Bloomington community and the Bloomington schools with our students, parents, and teachers. I served for five years as a planning commissioner for the City of Bloomington.
As your representative, I will continue to work hard for you, do my homework, be accessible, care for all students and families, and listen to all Bloomington residents.
Thank you for your support on November 7th!
