At its March 9, 2015 meeting, the San Rafael City Schools (SRCS) Board of Education welcomed its newest trustee. Maika Llorens Gulati was administered the Oath of Office by Superintendent Michael Watenpaugh, Ed.D. at the beginning of the meeting; she then was seated at the Board table. Trustee Llorens Gulati was selected as the provisional trustee to fill Paul M. Cohen’s Board seat for the remainder of his term, which expires in November 2015. 

“Maika brings countless qualities to the Board,” said Superintendent Watenpaugh. “She is respected and well-known in the SRCS community because of her tireless efforts to build close working relationships with students, parents, teachers, staff and community members, which have led to strong community and business partnerships. Additionally, as a new trustee, she will build on her already deep perspective of the District and our schools.”

Trustee Llorens Gulati and her husband Ashwin Gulati have resided in San Rafael for more than 16 years. They have two children, Kiara and Marcos, who are currently students at Davidson Middle School. Her work experience includes over 18 years of marketing and communications for Fortune 500, midsize and entrepreneurial companies in both the technology and service sectors. She is currently the executive director for HeadsUp, the San Rafael Public Education Foundation.

“I am honored and excited to join the SRCS Board of Education to serve our community of learners,” Ms. Llorens Gulati said. “Through my new role, I hope to acquire a deeper understanding of the workings of the District and help guide the District to a new level. As a Latina, I bring a diverse perspective and a voice for the Hispanic community. As a team player with other Board members, I can outreach and engage all of our constituents: students, parents, teachers and community members. Most importantly, by working together with the Board, I hope to ensure that all children receive what they need in order to thrive and achieve their maximum potential.”

Ms. Llorens Gulati’s became deeply involved with the San Rafael City Schools community when in 2009, during a sabbatical year, she volunteered as the fundraising chair for the Sun Valley Elementary School PTO. Then in 2010, she was hired as the executive director for HeadsUp. She also is a Board member for SchoolsRule, a member of Main Promise, Voces de Marin planning committee and a member of the San Rafael Chamber Education Committee.
