I am running for the school board because of my daughters are going into Middle School and I believe the Poway Unified School Direct is at a turning point, and I want to be part of what the district will become.
As I go on this journey I promise to listen, learn and lead to help build trust with the families, staff, and administration in all the schools of the district. I am especially looking forward to getting to know the 8 schools in Area B so I can help promote what is working. In addition, I want to learn about the specific challenges unique to each school so I can work to secure resources to fix those challenges.
Kevin has been married for 18 years to his wife who is a teacher in the Poway Unified School District. He is a loving and caring father of twin daughters, who will be going into 6th grade this fall. This past year Kevin and his daughters worked together to train and prepare for the YMCA 5th grade challenge of riding bikes across California. They accomplished their goal in April of 2018. Kevin’s two best memories of the experience were enjoying the time with daughters and finishing at Moonlight Beach in Encinitas.
While his daughters were young, Kevin was a stay at home dad for a year and a half. He loved that time molding his daughters and he appreciated the time it takes to raise great kids. As a parent volunteer at his daughter’s elementary school, he wanted to make a difference, fix what was broken, and make a lasting change. He accomplished this goal in many ways; he brought down the age of the library to less than 10 years old, repaired the quarter-mile track, brought a music program back to the school so the 4th graders were able to learn how to play the recorder, and finally helped bring an art program to the school for all the children to grow, develop and appreciate art.
Just like every parent and grandparent in the Poway Unified School District, all we want is to give every child the chance to learn, have fun, and grow up to add a positive influence to our community.
I am running for the school board because of my daughters and because the Poway Unified School Direct is at a turning point, and I want to be part of what the district will become. I will get more specific about my reasons in a moment. I have been a very active parent while my daughters have been in this District. I was the President of the Parent Group at their elementary school, and we raised over $300,000 to help bring back art and music, to improve technology and to make the facility safer and more pleasant for all the students.
