Los Angeles Unified School District, Multilingual and Multicultural Education Department
Stanton Fellowship, 2016

Hilda Maldonado is the Executive Director of the Multilingual and Multicultural Education Department at the Los Angeles Unified School District, where she oversees policy, leadership and instructional issues that affect students for whom English language learning can become a barrier to college, career and a life out of poverty. A former teacher and school principal, she wants to explore how we might leverage the multiple languages in L.A. as assets rather than deficits. She seeks to influence not only LAUSD, but parents, employers and the broader society.
