Gabriela López for San Francisco Board of Education

I am a Bilingual San Francisco public school teacher running for the Board of Education. We are at a crucial moment for San Francisco's children. I know what our students, families and teachers need. With over 10 years of education experience and leadership, I can bring an important voice to the School Board.
