I'm Elizabeth Santos, candidate for HISD Board of Trustees District 1.

District 1 has been my home for my entire life. I grew up and graduated from District 1 schools and for the last ten years I have taught high school in this community. As an educator, I have had the best preparation there is for the job of being a trustee-firsthand knowledge about how policies made in board meetings impact classrooms. I am the only candidate in this race who has pledged not to take campaign contributions from those who do business or seek to do business with the district, because I am fully committed to representing this community with integrity. I look forward to earning your vote and working with you to ensure ALL students within Houston ISD receive the education they deserve.
