Elizabeth Faraday

Welcome to the 4/5 SDC

I am looking forward to the 2018-2019 school year.  I truly believe it takes a village to raise a child so I look forward to working with parents, administrators, teachers, and specialists to ensure each student has an amazing school year!

A little about me.  My husband Jeff and I have been married for 36 years. We grew up in Marin Couny, met in high school, and have lived in the San Ramon Valley for over 20 years. Our two children attended Rancho Romero, Stone Valley, and Monte Vista.  Spencer (26) is married to Kelsie, and they live and work outside of Portland.  Ainsley (23) is a riding instructor/horse trainer, and a Physical Therapist Aide.  When I am not working, I love to spend time at our cabin on Huntington Lake in the Sierras, travel, visit family, and spend time at home.
