A transgender woman filed to run for the San Francisco Unified School District Board of Education in the fall election. Jaime Rafaela Wolfe, who lost her first bid for a school board seat in 2010, is again seeking to join the board.
“I want to make sure, and continue to ensure, San Francisco public schools continue to thrive and get the tax money they need,” said Wolfe, 36, a behaviorist and floor manager at Oakes Children’s Center Inc., a nonprofit that provides educational and therapeutic services to children with emotional and developmental issues. “Parents and children should feel fully supported by someone who knows how schools operate. I have the passion and will to really be that person.”
