THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT
Together we will build on the success of Eastmont Schools and we will innovate where challenges require fresh ideas.
Helping those around me be the best they possibly can has been a theme in my life for a long time. From taking it on myself to write a guidebook and make Spanish translation cards for other instructors in my first job as a lifeguard and swim instructor to my current position mentoring and guiding students and teachers as Academy Lead at Seeds Learning Center & Academy – helping others is an important part of who I am.
I am a life long Eastmont kid and am married to an Eastmont kid. Our families have been in the valley for generations. We are proud of the growth and heritage here and chose to build our lives in this incredible community. I have three kids ages 3, 11, and 13. The youngest is not yet in school, but the older two attend Clovis Point Intermediate School and next year the oldest will be moving to the Junior High School. These are my top three reasons to make sure that the Eastmont Schools are the best possible.
What if instead of just having anti-bullying programs we prevent the need for them? What if we taught in demand skills not found in a typical textbook?
Research shows that there is more to education than academics. We need a system that prepares students with skills for life and the world they are entering after graduation.
Can we, without ignoring current situations, educate a different culture of children? A culture of students with empathy and prosocial skills.
By teaching empathy, emotional intelligence, growth mindset, and soft skills from a very young age as part of our core curriculum, we could also help our students find lifelong success. When we engage students’ learning with these skills, and we create a safer experiential environment, we can increase students’ academic success.
