About Zima

Parent Leader & Advocate for Students

• Ensure transparency – Even when things go wrong, even when it is hard

• Expand efforts to close the achievement gap

• Member, Sacramento County Children’s Coalition 

• Member, California Department of Education Student Mental Health Policy Workgroup
