Trustee Gabi Blackman advocates for our children!
As your Trustee for Area-4, and a proud member of our community for 15 years, I am committed to working with you to further strengthen our schools. With 3 children in Dublin Schools, I personally understand the challenges our students and families face, and take the Board position and responsibility it entails seriously.
A graduate of Cornell University, with over 20 years of experience in the architectural industry, I specialize in educational planning, programming, design and facility development. I've had the pleasure to work with educational institutions across the United States to help create innovative solution that elevate the quality of learning for students. Harnessing this I bring my extensive public-process and management expertise in serving as your voice on the Dublin School Board. I am passionate about education and the ability it has to change lives, and strive to ensure campuses are safe, that we meet our growth needs, and most importantly, that our education system excels in preparing students for success in the global economy.
For over 10 years I have advocated for our children at both School Board and City Council meetings, to remedy the impact growth is having on our schools. I’ve campaigned for the 2nd High School, supported modernization of our older schools, and advocated for equity at the Cottonwood Creek k-8 School. Deeply vested in helping Dublin, I have extensively volunteered in our schools and in our community, supporting teachers and helping students across the district. Serving as a Trustee on the district’s LCAP Advisory Committee and Technology Committee, I champion the needs of our students! As Trustee I’m proud to have helped foster a greater level of communication and community outreach to better serve the needs of all Dubliners.
A critical-thinker, with the knowledge and experience to tackle the complex and pressing issues of growth, I bring a more sustainable and fiscally-sound long-term vision to our school district. As your trustee I will strive to ensure students have equitable access to the support and tools they need to succeed, bolster curriculum to strengthen college & career readiness, and to continue to align available fiscal resources with OUR prioritized needs!
Together we can create a brighter future for our children.
