PVSD couldn't have done better. Ms. Shima is a dyed-in-the-wool "school person" who gets kids, gets learning, and gets the community. She's smart and is a hard worker. Corte Madera is very lucky.

Finally! Should have promoted her years ago! Best decision I've seen PVSD make in a very long time.

Finally! Kristen has been the one thing holding CMS together for the last 10 years. We are so relieved she finally has the position she deserves, to use to her intellect, compassion, and common sense (!!) to get CMS back on track.

Don't miss out on the discussion!
