As the Superintendent of Schools, I add value by:

  • Working directly with the Board of Education to set the direction for PAUSD through creating policy, identifying priority areas, and allocating resources.
  • Maintaining focus on high-leverage actions to support identified priority areas such as serving and celebrating others, mental health and wellness, equity and excellence, early literacy, and innovation.
  • Creating, promoting, and evolving a culture of inclusion, optimism, and success for all.

The Palo Alto Unified team uses the Let's Talk platform to answer questions more quickly and efficiently in order to provide the best customer service.
