Jodi Massa is serving her first term, elected in November 2013, after many years of active involvement as a parent. She and her husband John moved to Soledad in 1994 from Salinas, where his family has farmed for four generations. Her background is in Early Childhood Education, having studied at CSU Fresno and Hartnell College. She has taught at Windy Acres for Preschoolers here in Soledad since 2005. They have three children, now at Main Street Middle School and Soledad High School.
Jodi is a product of public education and believes in the system. She believes good education is about more than just traditional academics. It’s about people. It’s about character and good citizenship and compassion. It includes access to vocational classes and both intra- and extra-curricular activities. Jodi believes discipline is as much a teachable moment as the three R’s. She values restorative justice, natural consequences, and keeping students in the classroom whenever possible. Jodi believes every adult on campus makes a difference in the life of a child. That by working together, as a team, we ensure success for our children and our community.
