Mother and Educator

Sofya for

SVUSD School Board

Area C


I would like to serve on the school board because I am a mother whose children have been growing up in our district, and I believe that it is time for me to give back to our community in a larger capacity.


As a professor at Cal State LA for 15 years, I believe in the value of public education and want to work with teachers, parents, and our community to ensure that all students receive the high quality education that they deserve.  

I also believe in the importance of being involved in local government. Serving on our city's Neighborhood Council #1 and being involved in local issues has given the me tools needed to navigate our public systems.

I would be honored to have your vote and, if elected, I promise to work diligently to ensure that students have a safe environment within which to learn and grow. I will also help develop and support initiatives that can facilitate the success of all of our students so that they are ready for college/careers. Thank you.


It takes a teacher to know education.
