Beth is a Palo Alto Unified School District parent who has been looking for an opportunity to get involved with an organization like DreamCatchers. She has always been interested in language and equity issues in education. Beth holds a M.A. in Romance Languages from the University of Pennsylvania and a Ph.D. in Education from Stanford University, where her area of focus was Language, Literacy, and Culture.
Beth has been an active volunteer in PAUSD for a number of years in a variety of capacities. She was PTA president at Nixon Elementary, served as chair of the Nixon Elementary site council, was a member of the district committee on Elementary Foreign Language Education, and most recently helped develop the new Gunn bell schedule as a member of the Gunn HS Creative Schedule Committee.
The mission of DreamCatchers inspired Beth, and she is excited to be part of this effort to level the playing field for all of our students in Palo Alto.
