Coronado announces candidacy for Chula Vista Elementary School Board

I am pleased to announce my candidacy for the Chula Vista Elementary School Board. As many of you know, I ran two years ago and was able to garner about 34% of the vote. With continued encouragement over the past two years, I am ready to run again! I have always been guided by a simple philosophy: I am a voice for children. Every day, I am motivated and I celebrate the academic and social success of every child I meet and hear about. I am driven by an awareness that there are many children who are at-risk in our schools, and I am working to look out for their future...with a focus on accelerating achievement, closing the achievement gap, and making sure that every student is receiving a beneficial education. Please visit my website at After visiting my website and you feel that you would like to volunteer in some way, send me an email through my GET INVOLVED page.
