My favorite childhood book that I read over (and over and over and over) was: Matilda by Roald Dahl. I loved Matilda’s quick wit, and strong desire to do what was right despite the poor character of many adults in her life.
My hope for Oakland students is: that each student will be provided with the tools and support they need to develop and pursue their passions.
