Parents and Students
Academic School Year Calendar
Ms. Veal was born and raised in San Francisco. Her parents were both public school educators, and the importance of education was something she instilled in her early on in life.
She has worked in the field of public education for over 25 years and has served students and families from both historically underserved and affluent communities. Ms. Veal began her career with SFUSD, where she worked as a kindergarten teacher/mentor teacher and an elementary vice principal. She then brought her equity leadership to San Mateo County, serving as an elementary principal in the San Carlos and Hillsborough City School Districts. After 17 years as a site administrator, Ms. Veal returned to her love of teaching and research and joined the Teacher and Administrator Development Team at the San Mateo County Office of Education (SMCOE). While at SMCOE, she was responsible for the professional development of beginning teachers and administrators. In 2021 she launched the Teacher Residency Program, which is a partnership between SMCOE and Alder GSE that focuses on recruiting and educating excellent teachers who reflect the populations of students served in our county.
Ms. Veal earned her Bachelor’s degree in English from the University of California, Los Angeles, a Master’s in Education and Multiple Subjects Teaching Credential from San Francisco State University, a Master’s in Education and Administrative Services Credential from the Principal Leadership Institute (PLI) at the University of California, Berkeley and is currently a doctoral student in Loyola Marymount University’s Educational Leadership for Social Justice program.
Ms. Veal has dedicated her life to disrupting the inequities in our educational system and is thrilled to be a member of our very special Bayshore learning community.
