Introducing Jordan's New Family Engagement Specialist

posted Sep 18, 2017, 8:31 AM by Susan Pound

Dear Jordan Community,

My name is Ana M. Perez-Hood, and before my new position as a PAUSD Middle Schools Family Engagement Specialist (FES), I worked at JLS as an ELL Instructional Aide and Parent Liaison for 10 years. I was born and grew up in Mexico City. My two sons attended JLS and Paly. Andrew, my oldest, is a high school math teacher in the San Jose School District, and Christopher, my youngest is an electrical engineer in Atlanta. My husband Bob is a computer scientist working at NASA, and we have been married for 32 years.

One of the goals of FES is to help HUR (historically underrepresented students) families to navigate the school system: welcoming and supporting them, helping with interpretation, and connecting them with school programs.  We also send them information about important resources and events, and we a play a big role interpreting at school parent meetings and translating documents for our school sites and the DO. I am including my schedule at all three middle schools below. Look for me in the main office. I am looking forward to working with all of you!
