Meet DANIELLE
Leadership for Our Students and Community

Children are the future of our country and we have a sacred obligation to provide a world class education to them.  Parents, guardians, grandparents, aunts, uncles and anyone else who cares for children seek a bright future for them full of opportunity to reach their potential and contribute meaningfully to society.  Our national and world economies are changing rapidly and young people today must be prepared to enter the most competitive workforce in human history.  In the last year, our students have endured historic learning loss. They and their families have also suffered emotionally through a pandemic.  Meeting the educational needs of students and addressing the learning loss is my top priority. We are right to be concerned about the negative influences coming at our children and to work to protect them. Every minute not spent on preparing  our students academically for college or career and on learning to revere our country is a minute stolen from our youth.  The promise of a public education has been a cornerstone in America for over 100 years and the Texas Constitution codifies the state's commitment to it into law.  I believe in public education because it changed my life and all of my children are products of public education.  My family moved to Round Rock ISD over a decade ago for the schools and my children have been well served here.  I am on this board today to relentlessly advocate that our district return to placing the needs of our students above all else.
