About the Session

This uniquely inspiring and collaborative session invites participants to engage in the deep individual and collective work needed to transform educational systems and build a culture of responsiveness. This session offers an integrated approach between trauma-informed care, cultural competency, and restorative-resiliency practices. Strategies will be offered to ensure a fully restorative and healing-centered culture that is apparent in policy and action.


Marisol Quevedo Rerucha

Marisol Quevedo Rerucha, currently the Chief of Partnerships and Strategy for the National Parents Union, is an educational leader who doesn't just talk about equity, social justice, trauma-informed care, generational poverty and restorative practices, but has both lived experience and a proven record of doing this work while leading change in TK-12 traditional and charter systems.

She has formed and used her voice as an educational advocate for students, parents, and communities while creating space and providing resources for staff, students, and parents to elevate theirs. Rerucha's passion is ensuring our alternative student population, those pushed out and most marginalized by society and our school systems, have high-quality educational experiences and are provided comprehensive services. She has engaged in the real work of addressing and ending the school-to-prison pipeline by building and leading career readiness and career technical education in juvenile court and community schools.

The impact of her passion, experience, work, and voice is felt beyond her own community as she serves as a charter school board member for the largest high school in the State of Colorado, is a member of the UNIDOS US National Institute for Latino School Leaders inaugural alumni council, and leads the La Comadre Blog for the San Diego region. Rerucha is a former district leader, principal and English teacher who lives in San Diego, California with her husband Daniel. They have three daughters, Camerina, Emilia, and Sophia, and one granddaughter, Luna.
