I am a current Ravenswood School District parent, with a daughter at Los Robles-McNair and a son at IHSD Ravenswood. Raising my children in East Palo Alto is something that my husband and I dreamed of doing when we moved here. In East Palo Alto, my family has been blessed with a diverse community that is rich, deep, and tight-knit, with neighbors who treat one another like family. With your vote, I will use my past experiences teaching preschool and college classes to provide insight into educators' perspectives. My current work counseling high school students to prepare successful college applications helps me understand student needs in our district. With your vote, I will add a dynamic voice to the Ravenswood City School District Board. I am committed to the East Palo Alto community, and I will drive positive change for the benefit of our schools. Vote Jenny Varghese Bloom for Ravenswood City School District Board, and I promise to be an effective, well-informed, and deeply invested servant for the flourishing of our community.
