Come work in Sunny San Francisco!

February 24, 2012

This morning I walked my daughters into school so I could pick up an order of homemade tamales that were part of one of our school’s fundraising programs. As I walked back out across the playground, I was contemplating the great dinner that I knew was coming tonight.

And then I stopped for a moment and looked at our playground. It was full of happy kids playing soccer, four-square, jumping rope and playing a little football. There were plenty of school staff overseeing the games, and knots of parents stopping to chat here and there. The sun was warm, there was Aretha Franklin streaming off the sound system and I just had a total California moment – what a wonderful school community we have!

Our San Francisco Mandarin immersion program exists in three schools, Starr King Elementary, Jose Ortega Elementary and Aptos Middle School. We’ll be hiring at all three schools next year. So if you, too, want a part of our California Dream, consider attending the San Francisco Unified School District’s networking night next month.
