    Jennifer (Jenney) Nash, Associate Principal (VP), Muirlands Middle
    My name is Jennifer Nash and I would love to represent the Vice/Associate Principals (VP’s) in SDUSD.  I have been on the Board of Directors since 2017 and would love to continue to represent our group.  I have been a Vice Principal  since 2003 and in 2017, helped to establish the Vice Principals Council (VPC) for Mid Level and K-8 Vice Principals (now Associate Principals).   The intent behind the VPC was anchored in a desire to create opportunities for our constituents to connect around issues pertaining to our roles in Elementary and Middle Schools.  I would be honored to continue this important work and represent you and your voice in the district. 
    Ballot for Vice/Associate Principals:

    Troy Hickey, Building Services Supervisor III, Pacific Beach Middle School
    I am running to be the representative for BSS III's and POS's on the AASD Board of Directors and would appreciate your support and vote. I am currently serving as the representative for the BSS III’s & POS’s on the AASD Board of Directors. I also serve on the AASD Executive Board, AASD Member Relations Committee and AASD Scholarship Committee, representing classified employees. This month, I start my 32nd year in the district; all in the Custodial Department. I have been a BSS III for about 19 years. I have worked TOC as a POS and a CSS over the years.   Over the years, I have served on many district or union (CSEA & AASD) committees or task forces, either voluntarily or by request.  I always do my best to represent and speak up for what is right, fair and in the best interests for the custodial employees to do our jobs in the safest and most efficient way.  I, obviously, like volunteering my time to represent my colleagues and have done so in the past and currently in organizations related to work and outside of the workplace as well.  I would be honored to continue to represent the best interests of the BSS III’s & POS’s on the AASD Board of Directors.  The AASD union is only as strong as our members and the combined voice of all of us as one.

    Ballot for Classified Supervisors:   

    Irene Hightower, Principal, Hancock Elementary
    Serving on AASD Board of Directors for many years as a Vice Principal Representative, Co-Chair of Member Relations and now as the Elementary Principals’ Representative has been an act of service I hold near and dear to my heart.  Providing input on various district committees as well as AASD sub-committees during the pandemic was time consuming, but I was glad I was able to support our team during such a trying time.  I hope to continue to serve my colleagues as their representative to provide input from the Elementary Principal perspective and advocate for items that affect our group.

    I am running for re-election as the Police Management Association (PMA) President.  I have been with SDUSD since 1979, as a kindergartener.  I began School Police as a Community Service Officer 23 years ago, became a sworn Police Officer in 2000 and now continue as a Police Sergeant.  Concurrently, I served the POA as Treasurer (5 years), Vice-President (1 year) and President (14 years).  I joined AASD five years ago and helped create the PMA and became the President.  During my first year of AASD, I also joined the Bargaining Team as a member, and then was appointed to serve as the Classified Bargaining Chair. I have represented school police management on the AASD Board of Directors as the PMA President for the last five years and as an AASD Executive Board member for the last four years. Now I ask for your vote to continue this distinguished honor in representing you as your PMA President.

In serving as your Certificated Co-Chair on the Legislative and Political Affairs Committee, I hope to continue to work towards widening the perspective of policy-makers so that our first-hand accounts and lived-leadership experiences become a consideration and not an after-thought in the creation of policies that directly impact our roles.  It’s been my profound honor to serve as Co-Chair and I would appreciate your vote as I seek to continue to serve on your behalf.

    I am currently serving as the classified co-chair of the Legislative And Political Affairs (LAPA) Committee and am once again running to hold this position.  I began my SDUSD employment journey in 2002 and have been a member of AASD since 2003.  My political involvement began 16 years ago and includes local, state and federal elections.  I have done everything from collecting ballot signatures, making phone calls, and registering voters, to working the campaign trail and attending political rallies.  The LAPA Committee calls to me as this is where I feel I can bring my knowledge of the political process and my passion and desire to make a difference to the members of AASD.  I would be honored to once again serve as the classified co-chair of the Legislative And Political Affairs Committee.
    Susan Kent, Associate Principal, Wangenheim Middle (certificated)

    Maria Moore-Flagg, Retired (classified)
    After serving SDUSD for 34 years, I retired in 2017 as a Classified Supervisor.  I have actively supported AASD as Classified Co-Chair for the Member Relations committee for the past 10 years.  I am passionate about my engagement with AASD programs and the responsibilities of my current role as Co-Chair of Member Relations, Co-Chair of the Retiree Network, and as a member of the AASD Board of Directors.  My foundational beliefs and commitment have supported the creation of sustainable programs.  If re-elected, it will be my honor to remain committed to actively supporting our members and the integrity of our Union.
    Mario Garcia, Translation Supervisor Special Education Programs (classified)
    I am currently in my 6th year as Supervisor of the Special Education Translation/Interpretation Department.  I have served the children and families of SDUSD for over 14 years as a Spanish/English interpreter.  I have enjoyed being involved in helping our AASD group prepare for the March Spring Conference as the co-chair of AASD's Professional Development Committee.  I would be honored to continue to serve as Co-Chair of this committee.
    Julie Garcia, Director, Educational Technology (certificated)
    My name is Julie Garcia and this is my 28th year in the San Diego Unified School District (not counting my time here as a student). I spent 20 years teaching math at Memorial Academy and Innovation Middle School where I discovered my passion for teaching and learning with technology. I currently use that knowledge in my leadership practices. During the past two years I have been quite busy curating content for learning at home, training over 5,000 teachers how to teach online, supporting teachers in teaching online and simulcasting, supporting sites as a substitute during staff shortages, and most recently, serving as the interim principal of iHigh Virtual Academy. In addition, I am co-leading the 1:1 device program for SDUSD.  It would be an honor to serve on the AASD Board of Directors as the Professional Development Committee Co-Chair as I believe this is an area that best utilizes my skill set. I am an innovative thinker and hard worker that would provide quality opportunities for our leaders.
    Audra Mandler, Principal, Encanto Elementary (certificated)
    I have been in SDUSD for the past 20 years. For the past 6 years, I have been the proud principal of Encanto Elementary and the previous six as a school resource teacher. I lead a Two-Way-Dual Language Title 1 school within the Lincoln cluster. In addition to second language learners and students of poverty, 14% of our students receiving services through Individualized Education Plans. I am building my leadership capacity in Cohort 4 of NISL, and participated in a year of coaching through the National Center for Urban School Transformation (NCUST). As an instructional leader of adults as well as students, I believe in the principles of Malcolm Knowles' andragogy learning theory model: (1) Adults need to know why they need to learn something (2) Adults need to learn experientially, (3) Adults approach learning as problem-solving, and (4) Adults learn best when the topic is of immediate value. I am running for Professional Development Co-Chair to support the design of professional learning for our leaders grounded in our Why, based on current needs, and directly related and valuable to the work we are executing on our sites.
    Jason Navarro, Associate Principal, Logan Memorial Educational Complex (certificated)
    I am currently serving as an associate (vice) principal of Logan Memorial Educational Campus. I began my career in education as a teacher for LAUSD and served as an administrator and Director of Instruction for Alliance College Ready Public Schools before relocating to San Diego. I accepted a position with SDUSD in March 2020, right before schools across the nation closed and have been an AASD member ever since. I participated in the district’s focus groups on Standards Based Grading and recently got involved with AASD by joining the AASD Focus Groups on Clerical and SpEd Staffing. I am running for the Professional Development Co-Chair position because I am firm believer that high quality and relevant professional development can increase a leader’s efficacy to support high quality instruction and cultivate schools where adults and students thrive.  As a newer member of SDUSD and AASD, I hope that my experiences can offer a unique perspective to the AASD Board of Directors and would be honored to serve as your Co-Chair for the Professional Development committee.
    Veronica Ortega, Operations Specialist, Leadership and Learning/Counseling and Guidance (classified)
    Hello and thank you for this opportunity! My name is Veronica Ortega, Operations Specialist in Leadership and Learning/Counseling & Guidance. I’ve been with the District for over 28 years, working at all levels of the K-12 system. I’ve been with AASD since 2004 and love the values and professionalism of the Association. I currently sit on the Finance Committee and Co-Chair the Scholarship Committee. I would greatly appreciate your support in my continued role as Classified Representative on the Board of Directors and as Co-Chair of the Scholarship Committee.  Gracias!
    Sharon Rubalcava, Program Manager, Counseling and Guidance (certificated)
    My name is Sharon Rubalcava, and I am the Program Manager of Counseling and Guidance.  I have served as the co-chair of the Scholarship Committee alongside my colleague, Veronica Ortega, since January 2020.  I also am on the Executive Board for AASD.  I have a strong affiliation with scholarships, not just because of my position with Counseling and Guidance, but because I received a scholarship (native San Diegan Scholarship) that funded my time through SDSU. I would also add that even though my own children did not benefit from scholarships, it means so much to see the work AASD does with its members’ children.  Please vote for me!  I will not disappoint!
