Diana Romero Campbell is running for the open seat on the Denver Public Schools Board of Education in District 1.
Diana grew up in Southwest Denver and is the daughter of teachers. Diana graduated from Thomas Jefferson High School and University of Denver and is now the mother of a DPS graduate and current student. She has worked in the Denver Metro nonprofit community for 20 years focusing on early childhood education, youth development, family engagement and education. She has served on a variety of parent committees in DPS—including the DPS Strengthening Neighborhoods workgroup, the Bond Oversight Committee, and District Accountability Committee. Because of her work in early childhood education, she knows how critical early literacy is and so she organized literacy night at her children’s elementary schools. She says “As a bilingual parent, I helped bridge a divide between English-speaking parents who were very involved in school fundraising and Spanish-speaking parents who felt left out. Together we created a school community that was inclusive and responsive to student and parent voice.”
What One Parent Has to Say about Diana:
“As a District One native Diana Romero Campbell, has firsthand knowledge of the need for literacy supports and clearly prioritizes educational equity and supporting our teachers and families. With her dedication to giving children access to resources and support needed to get a quality education regardless of their background, economic status, or the barriers they face, we believe she will do a great job for all of us in the DPS family,” said Sarah Titus, member of Stand for Children parent endorsement committee.
