Araceli Quezada

I have lived in the Bay Area for 20 years, but I was born and raised in Los Angeles.

I earned my B.A. in Comparative Social Change from Occidental College and came to San Francisco for graduate school, earning an M.A. in Ethnic Studies from SFSU. I have taught across grade levels and disciplines in middle school over the last 20 years. Most recently, I was the Middle School Lead Teacher at Beacon Day School in Oakland where I taught for 10 years. My husband, Ruben, teaches history at John O’Connell High School in the Mission. We have three children, ages 15, 17 and 19. I love to cook, read and spend time with friends and family. I am excited to join the SFS community.
