Christine Heaton named to Las Lomitas board

Christine Marie Heaton, a high school teacher who has two children in the Las Lomitas School District, has been appointed to fill the seat on the Las Lomitas school board vacated by the August resignation of Ann Jaquith.

Ms. Heaton was the unanimous choice at an Oct. 1 special meeting of the Las Lomitas board. Her term will end in December, 2014.

Ms. Heaton, the Social Studies Department chair and a teacher at Homestead High School in the Fremont Union High School District, has lived in the Las Lomitas district for 21 years.

The other candidates for the seat were Alifya Duggal, Bradley Scott Adelberg, and John Earnhardt.

"The Board had four talented candidates from which to choose and we are grateful for their interest and commitment to our schools," said Superintendent Lisa Cesario in a press release.

She said Ms. Heaton's education and professional experience "will be invaluable to the board while we move forward with the challenges of growing enrollment, implementation of common core standards, and integrating technology."

At the Las Lomitas schools, Ms. Heaton has volunteered on the School Site Council, the SELPA Parent Resource Council and as a special education resource parent.

She received her bachelor's degree in government and politics from George Mason University and holds a masters' degree in education from UCLA and a masters' degree in public administration and preliminary administrative services from Notre Dame de Namur University in Belmont.
