Patty Lerner

Excellence for all Students

My Mission

I have been referred to as a mediator, leader and someone who will get the job done. I have had leadership roles in business, volunteer organizations, and as Trustee for the Pleasant Valley School District. Spending my time and positive energy to strengthen the education of children is one of the best investments I can make for our community.

My History

For nearly three decades, I have committed my time and leadership skills to support education at all levels of the Pleasant Valley School District. I have had the opportunity to serve as a classroom volunteer, PTA president at the School Site and District Council levels, member of the Budget, Realignment and Secondary Education Committees and Chairperson of the PVSD Citizen’s Oversight Committee for Measure C. In 2006 I was elected for one term as Trustee to the PVSD School Board. In 2021 I was appointed as a Trustee for PVSD.
