Kelly has the educational

experience that matters

as a Pleasanton Unified School District Trustee!

“I started my career as a teacher and currently I have over 10 years of experience as an e-learning instructor and content developer for an online education company. I am a member of the Youth Commission for our city. With my educational experience and as a wife and mother of 3 children attending Pleasanton schools, I am now ready to make a greater difference for the benefit of our students.

It’s time to REDEFINE and CULTIVATE education during these challenging times. I have led schools and districts through the ‘change process’ including reform initiatives, trained teachers on a variety of curricular topics and instructional strategies, and served as an Executive Director and also as the President of a Board of two different charities. I am ready to serve in a greater capacity for our school community as a trustee.”

“Education in our world is facing a “new normal” that demands experience that Kelly has to solve new challenges that have never existed in our lifetime. ” Ray Hryczyk, Retired Assistant Superintendent of Schools
