    Personal statement:
    I am focused on tackling educational issues related to poverty and equity in our public schools. I believe that ordinary moments can be the most rewarding and that we miss out when we're busy pursuing the extraordinary. When it comes to attendance, discipline, and academic achievement, our kids will make progress because we are committed to them--we are one!
