Welcome to our New LA Team Member!
February 27, 2012 I am excited to introduce our members to Marisa Quintanar, the newest Regional Director on the Los Angeles Advocacy team. Marisa, a former teacher, was first introduced to charter schools through her work at East LA Community Corporation and with HMC Architects. She has most recently been engaged in political and communications consulting work. Marisa will support our schools outside of LAUSD, focus on our LACOE advocacy work, take on some of the operations work for the team, and will support our LAUSD Prop 39 work. Her first official day with us is the first day of conference.
Also, we are happy to let you know that after two months of preparing for the California Bar, Sara Hernandez will take the 3-day exam next week (while we're in Sacramento) and will return to CCSA on March 7. We're excited to have a full team again soon!
