Sophie is an energetic leader who knows how to move from thought to action, and from intention to accomplishment. She is both a product of, and a champion for, public education--from preschool to higher education. Her work at King Middle School exemplifies the initiative and involvement our schools and communities need to thrive. Sophie is committed to implementing Berkeley’s 2020 Vision, that asks all agencies – not just Schools – to invest in student success, and has a lifelong commitment to equity. She is a proven, trusted and exemplary leader for Berkeley, and has my most enthusiastic support.
