To Our West Contra Costa Community:
I’m very excited to be the newest member of the GO Public Schools West Contra Costa Team. I am originally from Chihuahua, Mexico. My family migrated to the San Pablo/Richmond area when I was young. I am a former WCCUSD student who graduated from Richmond High. I’m also a proud METAS Alumna!
I have been very lucky to work in our community, where I grew up for several years and currently live. In the past, I worked for Familias Unidas with their Teen Pregnancy Prevention Program in collaboration with many schools within our district. I also had the opportunity to work closely with the De Anza High School Health Center through Bay Area Community Resources.
Es un honor para mi representar a mi comunidad, cultura y lengua donde quiera que esté.
I believe that it is very important to help every single one of our children thrive in their education, whether it’s through handing them a band-aid or a scholarship application for their college tuition. It is imperative that we take action, together, to empower our youth to become the leaders of tomorrow.
Thank you for the opportunity to serve my community,
Erika Ruiz Rodriguez
