Mollie Matull is the parent of two teenage children who have grown up in San Francisco's public schools. She is a strong believer in the quality of San Francisco's public schools - and that its strong leadership, strong curriculum, enriching and varied experiences, and nurturing environment solidly prepare students for college. Mollie began her involvement in public schools when her children were in SFUSD's Early Education program. She was appointed on the inaugural Parent Advisory Council for the San Francisco Board of Education in 2003 representing pre-K families. She then became involved in the Afterschool for All Initiative/Expanded Learning Collaborative, working to improve access to and the quality of afterschool programs across the City. She has also served on the Citizen's Advisory Committee, advising DCYF on the original Children's Fund. Mollie participated in selection panels for the Mayor's Teacher of the Year Award, and was involved in various SFUSD efforts, including enrollment. As her children have grown, Mollie has supported her children's schools in the classroom, on field trips, in special programs, and on School Site Councils. She works and lives in the Presidio.
