About Tony:  Tony is the son of teachers and understands that education is the gateway to opportunity. He is an active Denver Public Schools parents of three and has worked as a substitute teacher.  He has volunteered in a variety of roles in DPS over the last 21 years including managing accountability of spending for the 2016 bond measure, developing school improvement plans for five elementary schools, and helping parents navigate the system to find the best school for their children. He says, “Equity, opportunity, and safe and supportive environments are three pathways to a high quality education. These are the pathways to a high quality education that I will champion on the Denver school board.”

Tony’s Vision:

  • All students receive a culturally relevant, anti-bias education that prepares them for the 21st century economy
  • Every child in DPS has access to an educational program and school community that best meets their needs
  • Schools are places where students love learning, teachers love teaching and where everyone feels safe
  • For teachers to be paid a living wage, allowing them to live in the same communities where they teach
