Lunch with Jennifer Thomas

Lunch with Jennifer Thomas

Join us for a conversation with Jennifer Thomas, President of the San José Teachers Association, representing more than 1,700 local educators. Jennifer will discuss the state of education amidst the uncertainty of a Trump administration.

Jennifer Thomas serves as President of the 1,700-member San José Teachers Association, the largest teachers union in Santa Clara County, helping advance the mission of empowering teachers to educate, inspire, and change lives through public education. A long-time resident of the Silicon Valley, Jennifer is a proud product of its public schools, having graduated from San José Unified School District and San José State University.

Jennifer is a passionate advocate for public education’s value to communities and families, frequently speaking and writing on the issues for organizations like EdSource and the Silicon Valley Education Foundation. Recently, Jennifer led the campaign to write and pass AB 375. Signed into law by Governor Brown in 2015, AB 375 expands paid family leave to educators in California. Prior to her work in policy, Jennifer was a high school English teacher and instructional coach, recognized for her work in the classroom by the NEA and Pearson Foundation with a Horace Mann Award.
