School volunteer, OUSD Mom, Policy & Communications Expert
“I want to ensure each child, parent, teacher, staff member and administrator are supported and feels valued. I care about the fiscal responsibility of our district and the strength of our curriculum. I also want to bolster our mental wellness initiatives and broaden offerings for our community. It is my goal to help OUSD to continue to be an outstanding school district for our children and families.”
Hi! I’m Edda Collins Coleman, running to ensure OUSD remains an outstanding school district for our children and families.
As a proud Orinda resident and mother of three daughters (8th, 4th, and pre-school grades), I feel deeply connected to our schools. I’ve enjoyed being a field trip driver at Del Rey Elementary, a school library volunteer at Wagner Ranch Elementary, and an OIS Parents’ Club Board member for two years. I’ve also served on the interview panel for principal at one of our elementary schools, and am currently on the District’s Parent Equity Committee, where I worked to retool OUSD’s mission and strategic direction.
When elected, I will also draw on my professional and academic background to meaningfully contribute to our school community. My 20-plus years in policy and
communications will help me build consensus and partnerships, and bring significant value in strategy implementation, stakeholder engagement, crisis management, and communications skills to our school board.
I’d love to hear from you! Please connect with me via social media or firstname.lastname@example.org. It is better work when we work together!
A collaborator and committed advocate.
