I am your neighbor, a teacher, and parent of five children who currently attend elementary, middle, and high school in Irvine schools. We are an Irvine Unified School District (IUSD) Family. I am running because of my compassion for our next generation–that they have the opportunity to determine what they are good at so that they can do good with it.
I have been an educator for over 20 years serving in many roles including teacher, instructional coach, administrator, and teacher educator. I received my teaching credential from UCI, my educational doctorate at USC, and am a National Board Certified Teacher.
My priorities are supporting policies that: encourage belonging and the well-being of our students in a positive and safe learning environment, supports the high academic achievement of our students and by learning 21st Century Skills in state-of-the-art schools, and strengthen university, school and community partnerships to support students. I want to retain and attract top teachers and ensure responsible spending and accountability of our taxpayer dollars.
I’m honored to have the broad support of Current IUSD Trustees: Ira Glasky, Paul Bokota, Lauren Brooks, and Cyril Yu along with Irvine City Councilmember Tammy Kim and State Senator Dave Min. I will work in partnership with parents, teachers, staff, university, and the community to ensure our students’ success.
Please vote for Dr. Jeff Kim for IUSD Governing Board Member, Trustee Area 4.
