Angelica Alvarez is a relentless advocate who seeks re-election as a School Board Director District 2 in Highline Public Schools. As a first generation Mexican-American, she believes that diverse identities and voices are assets that must be cultivated in community with one another to strengthen pathways from early childhood to post-secondary success for all students—particularly for those most affected by systemic inequities.

Angelica has acted as a systems navigator and translator across language, background, and sector to amplify the voices of her family and community her entire life – first as the daughter of migrant field workers, then in partnership with her husband Rev. Ernesto Alvarez starting a bilingual church in Burien, and currently in her role as family engagement manager at the Puget Sound Educational Service District.

Her 12-year journey on the Highline School Board began at the request of mothers in need of a bilingual advocate.

Angelica believes that systemic change requires time and negotiation for enduring impacts. She is running for re-election to ensure that every child knows that anything is possible through hard work and heart, and every parent has the agency to shape their child’s success, without exception.

Occupation: GEAR Up Specialist -Tukwila School District

As a School Board member my job is to hear and respond to the needs of students, families and educators. My goal is to ensure that, when elected, we center the voices of students and educators - give them agency in the decisions that are being made about their education. It is important that we build relationships with the cities that we serve. Our young people need us to show up for them in a way that we are longer siloed. Building bridges to meet the needs of our young people.

I served as the Vice-President of the Tukwila Educational Association. Through this work I have gained experience in labor management, discussing issues facing both educators and district leadership. I will use this experience, as a board director, in decisions that are made on how money is used to support educators, students and programs.

I want to build hope and brighter futures!

Elected experience: Precinct Committee Officer - 33rd Democrats, Tukwila Education Association Vice President Endorsements: King County Democrats, 11th District Democrats, 33rd Democrats, IUPAT DC5 Painters & Allied Trades, Local 86 Ironworkers
