We need powerful History–Social Science voices in our state. I hope you will make me one of them on the CCSS Board, so that we can work together and take advantage of the renewed interest in civics and inquiry in schools. We need to use our collective voices for administrators, Board Members, and Legislators to really understand the value of a strong HSS education. I hope to support the Northern California area affiliates to become stronger and work with the CCSS Board to make CCSS an even more robust organization.
