Status of the California Parent Center Trainings:

August 15, 2017

Dear Colleagues,

After many wonderful years of providing trainings for educators, parent leaders, and community members, Jeana Preston, our Director, is retiring this month after working at SDSU for over 14 years!

Melissa Popovich, our Program Manager, will be starting her next chapter as well in a new job.

"We are both grateful for the opportunity that our family engagement work gave us to meet so many truly compassionate and dedicated educators and parent leaders from school districts all across California. We will miss our work, but we are confident that each of you in your roles will continue the “heart” work of building positive relationships between families and schools to ensure all children succeed in school and in their lives."

Education is the inheritance parents leave their children.

Best Wishes,

Jeana Preston and Melissa Popovich
