Doug and his family have lived in Nuevo since 1993 and both of his children attended schools in Nuview Union School District.

San Jacinto College dual-enrollment college professor and a math teacher at the high school. His daughter, Sarah, is a nursing instructor. Doug attributes his children’s academic and career successes to the excellent educational foundation they received from Nuview Union School District.

With the support of a committed, passionate board, Nuview Union School district will remain a premier school district in the State of California. As a school board member, Doug is committed to being accessible, collaborating with all stakeholders, and building public understanding, support, and participation.
