I worked very closely with Nina supporting Montera Middle School teachers and in school activities, as well as building a rich set of after school enrichment programs, and working closely with the school administration and OUSD, to help ensure we provide a productive learning environment for teachers and students. I can confidently state there is not a better advocate for our youth and the future of Oakland Schools. Nina has my greatest respect and recommendation.

Nina understands the importance of developing the whole child. She will be a wonderful school board member.

I worked in Oakland Schools for over 30 years and met many wonderful parents. Nina is one of the best. She showed great care for her own children and for the children of others. She has always understood the importance of community.

In addition to her compassion is a strong professional background and knowledge of the workings a large, complicated school district.

In the 10 years that I have known Nina I have observed her excellent problem solving skill. She is never confrontational but does her homework, researches the options and brings along others in the process.

I look forward to watching the progress on the board with the intellect, energy and good will that Nina will bring.
