Candidates 2017: Noella Corzo for San Mateo-Foster City (CA) School Board.

I am a San Mateo native and graduate of our San Mateo-Foster City School District. I was an economically disadvantaged English Learner, and the dedication of my teachers at Park School, Abbott Middle School, and San Mateo High School have shaped the person I am today. These experiences imparted the value of education and my deeply held belief that all students should be empowered to reach their potential.

As a member of the school community, I am an involved parent and PTA-member. My six year old son attends Fiesta Gardens International School, where he studies English and Spanish. I am bi-lingual and Spanish is my first language. Today I support English language learners in our district by serving on the board of FGIS' PTA as the English Language Advisory Committee and as the PTA Liaison for the District English Language Advisory Committee.

I am a graduate of our local community college district and hold a Bachelor's of Arts in Sociology. For several years, I worked in the finance and business sector before turning to the nonprofit sector. Today, my work centers around providing services to children and adults with developmental disabilities as a Social Worker.

I value diversity in my friendships and community, and I enjoy working with people from all walks of life. I am a life-long volunteer and I currently serve on the executive board of the San Mateo County Latina/o Democratic Club. I appreciate the opportunity to interact with so many community members as an AYSO soccer coach, member at my church, and local YMCA.
