About Michelle

My Story


I grew up in Sunnyvale and was raised in the District, having attended Cumberland, Sunnyvale Middle School, and Fremont High School.  My own children have attended school in the District for the last 8 years and with my youngest in Kindergarten, we will be in the District for many more years.  

Serving on the School Board

I was appointed to the Sunnyvale School Board in May 2017 from a field of nine candidates.  In that time we have continued to make our schools safe environments for students and teachers, have taken the lead in improving social and emotional learning among our students and have maintained a strong fiscal stewardship.  

As Vice President of the Board, I have worked to build relationships throughout the District to strengthen each school community and connect families to the District.

Building Bridges to Better Education

My priority for the District is to continue the great work I have started of building bridges by:

  • Helping close the opportunity and achievement gap
  • Empowering and encouraging family involvement in education
  • Connecting school communities with the District
  • Improving technology resources and instruction in the classroom
  • Supporting our fantastic District Staff and teachers

Help me continue the great work I have started to ensure each child that walks through the doors of our schools has access to a better education.
