Candidate Narrative

Jesus M. Holguin
Candidate for Member Representative, Board of Directors

As a current member of the National Parent Teacher Association (NPTA) Board of Directors, I have had the honor of participating and contributing to some of the decisions driving the association’s work and look forward to continue serving in that capacity.

My commitment is to actively work along with members of the NPTA Board of Directors to address education issues and advocate for an improved national educational system for all children attending our public schools.

My contributions will be geared towards supporting every student and their families by increasing parent and family engagement opportunities, including fathers’ active participation; addressing the ongoing concern of student safety and well-being; working closely on diversity, inclusion and outreach issues; increasing student access and participation in arts education at local, state and national level; and advocating to increase funding for public education.

Now more than ever, meeting the educational, social and emotional needs of students and their families is critical. We must meet those needs to ensure opportunities for success for every student. We must advocate for ongoing effective distance learning, adequate technology and internet access, and proper educators’ professional development. I look forward to working with NPTA on researching, sharing, and considering ideas, strategies, and best practices in school settings across the nation, to meeting those needs, and making sure students are well prepared for college, career, or technical education after graduating from high school. Every child deserves an opportunity to succeed.

As a public servant for over 24 years, with 18 years of experience as a school board member in California, 35 years of knowledge and expertise in school finance, and 24 years in educational leadership positions, I would greatly appreciate the opportunity to continue serving on the NPTA Board of Directors, advocating for all our children in the Nation.
