for CCSD Trustee, District G
"Helping Every Child to Succeed"
Linda Pacheco Cavazos was appointed to the Clark County School District (CCSD) Board of Trustees on August 17, 2017. She is the representative for District G.
Linda is from Superior, Arizona, a small copper mining community, where she attended public schools with two sisters and three brothers. Her parents strongly supported higher education, so with the help of loans and scholarships, she first began college at Arizona State University before transferring to, and graduating from UNLV with a Bachelor's
Degree in Secondary Education and a Master's Degree in Educational Psychology and Counseling.
Linda also worked as a food server to help finance her university education, and after graduation, taught at Basic High School for 15 years. She then was an adjunct instructor at UNLV for 9 years, while beginning a private counseling practice.
Currently working as a family therapist part time, Linda counsels children and adolescents, suicide and gun violence survivors, and veterans suffering from PTSD. She believes the trustee position is an effective way to combine her counseling and teaching experience into meeting the many challenges that our students, staff, and communities face at this time.
Linda very much wants to familiarize herself with and understand the unique needs of the schools and their neighborhoods in District G and to reduce the dropout rate by ensuring that every student has the best opportunity and access to resources that the District can offer.
Linda and her husband Bob have five grown children, and seven grandchildren, with three of the grandchildren currently attending CCSD schools, one of them in District G. She looks forward to continuing her work in District G for the students, parents, teachers/staff, and the community.
