Personal Quote:

"We have to talk about liberating minds as well as liberating society." - Angela Davis

Looking Ahead:

"I hope the future of our children is not left up to those who hold the power to continue the cycles of oppressions, but rather by those who have learned to liberate themselves from them. The American education system must be re-envisioned to account for what has been omitted from textbooks and classrooms since its inception.

Our children and students deserve equal access to educational opportunities, but only when it is a true depiction of the experiences of all people in this nation will it be a just and equitable opportunity for learning. In the next 4 years, I hope to serve a community longing for such opportunities by empowering and supporting them to bring forth more meaningful changes to our District and beyond." - Janet Sarai Llerandi Gonzalez
