Why I am a candidate for Orange County Board of Education, Trustee Area 3
Raised in Southern California, I always knew I would be a teacher. After graduating from UC Santa Barbara, I began my teaching career and have taught in three public school districts. I continued my education and earned a master's degree in public policy from Claremont Graduate School and a doctorate in educational leadership and policy from UC Irvine and CSU Fullerton, serving as an advocate for quality public education.
I have been married to Dr. Daryl Watkins for 28 years, a leadership coach, an author, an F-18/A pilot, and a Navy veteran. After leaving the military, Dr. Daryl Watkins founded Leadership Development and Research Consultants and continues to serve as a professor of leadership at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University.
Together, we have raised three sons and have shown that family values and a strong sense of purpose can go hand in hand.
