Meet Shana

Educator. Mom. Consultant.

Hi. I'm Shana. I'm running for Palo Alto School Board.

 

I'm a PAUSD alum, parent, and a public-school educator who understands and cares deeply about Palo Alto schools and our community. PAUSD had an incredibly positive impact on me and inspired my career in public education.

 

I'm running because I've seen first-hand -- as a former teacher, district parent, and advisor to parents -- how PAUSD is, and is not, currently meeting the needs of students. I believe PAUSD needs district-wide improvements in the areas of academic and social-emotional curricula, equity, and student support and that a community of collaboration needs to be restored after recent difficult years. I'm a firm believer that public schools and public-school teachers are the backbone of our society and can help all students reach their full potential. This can only happen when teachers are supported, and students are supported, engaged, and appropriately challenged.
