As a strong advocate for community, I view quality, equitable education as a basic right.  I have a strong passion for and commitment to Pacifica and contribute where I can so that our children have the education that they need so they can develop into creative, problem-solving, and compassionate critical thinkers.

As a private pilot, performing artist and former educator, I believe every student should have the opportunity to a quality education in music, art and science.

Jena Pesqueda

Director of Development

With 46 years of experience as a classroom teacher ranging from  grade 6 ELA through college rhetoric and composition, I possess a deep understanding of our public school system along with its critical needs, current challenges, and long-term visions for the future. I believe in a meaningful and rigorous educational experience that honors each individual and provides instruction and guidance that will prepare them for a future that does not yet exist.

I believe in 'being part of the change you want to see' . As a parent, and having gone through the public education system myself, I see accessible educational opportunities as a critical cornerstone for a thriving community. Together, we can open doors and help shape our future generation for a brighter tomorrow!

I believe in the importance of fostering an environment where children can discover and pursue their passions.
