A life-long resident of Los Angeles and graduate of UC Santa Cruz, he is also the nephew of Jackie Goldberg, who is president of the Los Angeles Unified Board of Education.

The CTA’s State Council of Education elected the new slate of officers on Sunday. Current CTA Secretary-Treasurer Leslie Littman,  an AP US History, Economics and Government teacher in the William S. Hart Union High School District, will become vice president. Erika Jones,  44, an elementary school teacher in Los Angeles Unified, wills serve as secretary-treasurer.
