Sharing Our Stories is a special initiative of the San Mateo County Office of Education to highlight and celebrate the county's diverse group of education leaders. We will continue to add videos - Our Stories - with the hope of connecting to our lived history, promoting greater understanding, empowering our youth, and creating a more equitable education system in the county.
