Letter to Families from Chancellor Richard A. Carranza

 

Dear Parents,

It is my pleasure to serve as your Schools Chancellor. I am eager to meet parents and families, and hear your hopes for your children and schools.

I want to share a bit about my life and career. I grew up in Tucson, Arizona, the son of a sheet metal worker and a hairdresser. My grandparents were immigrants from Mexico and I did not learn English until kindergarten. Although my parents never attended college, they knew that the path forward for my twin brother and me included an education. They wanted more for their children—a college degree and meaningful work. I know that you also want the same opportunities for your children.

I have devoted my life to public education because it is the greatest gift I have received. I started teaching nearly 30 years ago in the same public high school that I attended. I began as a bilingual social studies and music teacher, and later became a high school principal in Tucson. I then went on to be a regional superintendent in Las Vegas, and a superintendent in San Francisco, and most recently, in Houston.
