Why I'm Running

“I’m running for School Board because I believe in the limitless potential of every child.

As a parent and a former public school teacher in under-resourced communities, I know a high-quality education that meets the holistic needs of children and families can transform lives and strengthen communities.

Today nearly half of our students aren’t meeting grade-level standards and Covid has only exacerbated longstanding inequities and left many children and families reeling from trauma. Despite this, I’m optimistic about what we can achieve with clear goals centered around kids and families.

We must remain focused on sustaining student growth TK-12 by equipping educators, support staff, and school leaders with the training and support they need to ensure every child has the skills, resources, and resilience to succeed. On the School Board, I will work in respectful partnership with parents, teachers, students, and school leaders to implement systems and provide resources for our children to thrive and build stronger schools and communities. 

I would be honored to have you by my side in achieving this mission.”

Shana's Plan for the School Board

As a parent with firsthand experience navigating school during a pandemic, Shana knows what families have been through. On the School Board, she’ll build stronger schools that ensure every San Diego student – regardless of neighborhood or ability – has the resources, support, and opportunities they need to succeed.

Today, our school board has no parents with children in our schools. As a mom with a daughter in our schools, Shana will represent the district’s families and elevate and amplify their voices on the Board.
