I am proud to endorse Karolina Villagrana for School Board Director, District 2. Karolina is an experienced educator who truly sees the value and potential in every child.

DPS District 2 Director, 2017-2021

I have known Karolina for five years and am supporting her because she will put the needs of students and families in southwest Denver at the center of every decision. For both Karolina and me, our students and families are extensions of ourselves. We are both former DPS students who call southwest Denver home, were multilingual students, and are daughters of Mexican immigrants.

I support Ms. Villagrana because she was the type of teacher that cared about her students, she cared about our education and always tried to make us feel comfortable.  Our neighborhood needs more people that we can count on like Ms Villagrana!
