I Am An Educator and Board Member
Hello, and nice to meet you. I am Vicki Gordon. I was born and raised in the East Bay and am a proud Diablo Valley College and California State University East Bay alumna. I later returned to CSUEB for my teaching credential and taught in both the Pittsburg Unified School District and Martinez Unified School District (MUSD).
I was elected to the MUSD Governing Board in 1997 and served there for over 15 years. During that time, I worked as a community volunteer, raising money for libraries, music, sports and classroom technology.
I have been working tirelessly for the past 8 years on our community colleges, forging closer ties between K-12 districts and making efficient use of the taxpayers' money as we rebuild and maintain our infrastructure.
This work is personal. My family has a long tradition of supporting education in Contra Costa. My father-in-law, the late George R. Gordon, was one of the founding fathers of the Contra Costa Community College District. My mother, Brenda Byers, was a MUSD teacher and administrator for 30 years.
