My Top 3 Priorities

  • address sagging enrollment. We cannot continue to lose students to other colleges. By creating local learning centers with increased presence, the college will provide better access, promote growth and be more effective in supporting students.
  • I will hold the Board accountable to ensure they are investing wisely in educational opportunities.
  • It is imperative that we fulfill our promise to provide students with top-notch training for jobs that support a family, and transfer education so students will flourish and grow.

Experience

Biography

I am a retired College Dean and Professor of Music.  I worked at San Joaquin Delta College from 1989 to 2017.  I began my teaching career in California's Public Schools teaching music to elementary, junior high, and high school students.

I earned Bachelor and Master of Arts degrees from Californai State University, Chico and a Doctor of Musical Arts degree from the Univeristy of Southern California.

Political Beliefs

Political Philosophy

I have had the privilege of working with San Joaquin County students, parents and teachers throughout my nearly 40 years as an educator. While we have made improvements to local education, there is still much to do.

 

As a former K-12 teacher, I understand the fundamental need to prepare our students for college. As a retired professor and college administrator, I know Delta College’s strengths and weaknesses. The foundation of Delta College is strong yet there are many areas that need improvement.

 

First and foremost is to address sagging enrollment. We cannot continue to lose students to other colleges.  By creating local learning centers with increased presence, the college will provide better access, promote growth and be more effective in supporting students.

 

I will hold the Delta College Board accountable to ensure they are investing wisely in educational opportunities for all. It is imperative that we fulfill our promise to provide students with top-notch training for jobs that support a family, and transfer education so students will flourish and grow.

 

As your representative I will listen, encourage dialog and collaborate with my Board colleagues to improve the college's performance and effectiveness.

 

I would be honored to have your vote.
