The Sonoma Valley Unified School District will apparently name Jacqueline Parker as principal of Sassarini Elementary School pending formal board approval at the May 6 board meeting.
Parker will begin her assignment July 1.
Parker received her preliminary administrative services credential and her master’s degree in educational leadership and administration from San Francisco State University in 2006; her multiple subject teaching credential from Dominican University in 2003; and her bachelor’s degree from California State University, Los Angeles in 2001. Parker is a native Spanish speaker and is trained as a bilingual, bicultural educator. In 2011, she was recognized as an Outstanding Educator by Marin County.
Parker comes to Sonoma from San Rafael City Schools where she has served as K-8 academic dean, instructional program manager, bi-literacy program coordinator, summer school principal, and teacher in pre-kindergarten through eighth grades.
In San Rafael, Parker worked with schools on curriculum and instruction development, data analysis, program design, professional learning communities (PLC), common core implementation, and outreach to community partners.
