As a classroom teacher, mother of five and parent volunteer, I first ran for school board in 2006 because I wanted to improve our schools and enhance educational opportunities for all our children. I'm proud of our progress. Our new board still has much to do. We can't be satisfied until every child receives the quality education they deserve.
Growing up in New York, Madeline worked her way through school, moved to California and eventually earned a teaching credential from UC Berkeley. She taught Adult Education for 30 years, won the Adult Education State Excellence in Teaching Award in 2003, and retired from teaching in 2010. As a mother of five, Madeline spent 15 years as a parent volunteer in WCCUSD schools. She was actively involved in parent organizations, serving as President, Co-President, and Site Council Chair. In addition, she served on several Districtwide committees, including the Redistricting Committee, the Citizens’ Bond Oversight Committee and the Facilities Subcommittee. In 2005, she was Co-Chair of Measure J, which raised $400 Million to continue upgrading the District’s antiquated schools. Madeline successfully ran for WCCUSD School Board in 2006 and was re-elected n 2010 and 2014. As a teacher and parent leader, Madeline brought her unique perspective to the School Board. She values the safety and security of our students and staff above all else. She has a thorough understanding of the resources and limitations that face our district.
