1. How do Seguin ISD Students inspire you?

Students at SISD inspire me through their actions not only in school activities but also in serving our community in times of need. It’s my belief that these values of performing well in school and in our community can mainly be attributed to the dedication of their parents and teachers. The students are committed to excel in everything they do. Their enthusiasm is evident in various school performances from pre K-12. I’m inspired by their school performances and serving our community through the food bank programs, Sports, Fine Arts, Band, Mariachi, Cheer Groups, ROTC, Agriculture, and other Career specific programs.

 

2. What motivates you to serve as a Seguin ISD board member?

I have always been a firm believer that we were placed on this earth “To serve and not to be served”. My parents always emphasized the importance of obtaining a good education. I’ve seen the education process undergo some dramatic changes and challenges over the last two decades. We need to prepare our students for an ever changing workforce. A board trustee is given the opportunity and more importantly the responsibility that policies are implemented to allow ALL students to excel in the subject matters of their choice. I see more positive activities throughout SISD and there will always be room for improvement on the challenges that SISD faces. My motivation to serve as a board member is driven by knowing that SISD will overcome these challenges with the current corrective actions in place.

 

3. What are some of the highlights you’ve experienced serving on the board of trustees?

Having served for a year has been a worthwhile experience and there have been several highlights. The main one would be given the trust from the community to allow me to fulfill my duties as a trustee. I have also had the opportunity to meet with various teachers, staff, and administrators and they all share the same vision to help SISD become a school district that excels. The passing of the $64.7 million dollar bond was another highlight which sent a strong signal from our community that they are willing to support the district in upgrading our facilities. Another highlight would be the group training that the Team of 8 have experienced along with our individual training. This training provides us with the tools that we need to improve our schools' performance. Another highlight would be collaborating with the other board members. We come from different backgrounds and experiences, but we all strive for the common goal which includes transforming “Exceptional Students to Exceptional Citizens.”
