Why public education?
I’m passionate about public education because it’s the system I grew up in. While I experienced the divide in equitable education that exists in the Bay Area, I was fortunate to be guided by family throughout my educational career. I believe that change is possible in creating an equitable high-quality education for all students. At GO, I have the honor of sharing family’s stories and creating a platform for their voices to be heard.
