I've been blessed to serve Detroit families for the last 4 years.
In 2016, you elected me to bring integrity, creativity, and vibrancy to the Detroit Public Schools Community District. Of 63 candidates, you chose me and I hope the last four years have made you proud.
I've spent my time as an officer of the board and Chair of the policy committee. I've connected with families and helped to make district leadership more accessible. I've lead initiatives to amplify student voice. I've worked with the community to build a more equitable and student-centered culture.
Some of the initiatives I've lead and been most proud of include:
Developing and offering an "All A Board" training session for families to learn about board meetings and procedures
Establishing DPSCD as a sanctuary district, safe for immigrant students and families
Reforming the Student Code of Conduct to include restorative practice, reduce the rates of expulsions and suspensions, and disrupt the school to prison pipeline
Establishing a student leadership role on the board
Facilitating a review of safety and police in schools
