The true test of a public servant’s dedication is how they respond to citizens seeking help who are not direct constituents.

Over a year ago, a group of parents gathered to urge Fort Worth ISD to be more proactive in identifying and remediating learning disabilities, namely dyslexia. Ashley Paz—who is not the trustee for my geographic area—took the time to attend that meeting.

In the months that followed, Ashley continued to m...

A few years ago, my son, a student enrolled at FWISD identified with a learning disability, was reading three years below his grade level.  I was stunned to learn he had not been receiving services from his school to help him reach his reading goals. 

I reached out to his teachers, to his counselor, and finally to the principal.  Unfortunately, we were unable to make any meaningful progress with these conversations, and I was a...


The following press release is from Council of the Great City Schools Executive Director Michael Casserly.  According to FWISD CFO Elsie Schiro at a March 7 budget workshop, the district stands to lose between 9-12 million in federal funding.  That estimate was before the president's budget priorities were released.  I look forward to learning what the impact would be under this proposal.

About two years ago I received news that changed my life forever.  That I was accepted for admission to the TCU Executive MBA program.  It was an overwhelming to think about going back to school while raising two young children, working full time, and serving on the school board.  It took a lot of prayer and hard conversations with my family, but I ultimately took the leap.  

I started classes on my 33rd birthday, Aug...


This past summer I was honored to be named Chairwoman of our FWISD Policy Review Committee.  Since then our committee has established ourselves as a single purpose committee formed to review our local governance (B) policies that define the way the board conducts business.  We have put off any concrete policy review until we had the opportunity to participate in Lonestar Governance training that was prescribed by Texas Ed...


It's time to dust off our boots and hit the streets of District 9 to remind the voters how much progress we have made over the last four years. In this time we have also seen our share of challenges, but with you by my side we have persevered for our children. Now I am asking you to stand with me once again.

This Sunday, Febuary 5, I will be hosting a volunteer meeting at The Neighborhood Library located at Allen and 5th at 2pm...


Today was one for the history books.  I am humbled at the turnout from today's Women's March on Downtown Fort Worth.  8,000+ women, men, and children joined together in unity to take a stand against the incessant division in our society.  The entire experience was joyful, and cathartic, and peaceful.  I loved that everyone had their own reason for being there, but people of all ages, races, religions, and political ideologies...


Four years have flown by. Thank you for your support and encouragement, District 9. It has been one of the greatest honors of my life to serve you. 

I look forward to earning your vote once again so we can continue improving opportunities for EVERY child in Fort Worth ISD.  


The new year is always an exciting time for me.  It is a time to reflect and renew my commitment to the things that matter.  There is nothing that has mattered more to me over the last 4 years than my service to the students and parents of Fort Worth ISD, and I am proud to announce my re-commitment to this service and my campaign for re-election to the Fort Worth School Board.

In 2013 I was a young mother prepari...


It has been over two years since I visited The White House for the first time to attend President Obama's Town Hall for his My Brother's Keeper initiative.  White House officials have assembled a national day of action to bring awareness to mentor-ship opportunities as they prepare to turn the keys over to the new administration.  

The national day of action has been called in conjunction with a final convening of the My B...
