Cathy was born in Albuquerque. She moved to San Francisco after high school. She attended San Francisco City College where she completed the dental technician program. Cathy also attended Diablo Valley College in the east bay where she received her associates degree.
Cathy has worked as a dental technician but found this career too isolating. She later found a new career in the academic field; at Cal State she worked with the admission and testing departments.
After decades of living in the San Francisco bay area she welcomed the move back to Albuquerque to be close to family. She has had the opportunity of working at the courts as a bailiff and most recently working with students at the University of New Mexico.
In her spare time she serves as a board member at her neighborhood association. She also volunteers at her church and helps children learn to read.
She enjoys being with family, taking walks along the Bosque and Sandia mountains, attending community events, and taking road trips to other places in our beautiful Land of Enchantment!

My name is Daniel Frampton and I go by Dan, or Mr. Frampton. I’ve been an activist and an organizer for 30 years; and have worked on issues ranging from students’ rights while in college back in Pennsylvania to issues with homeless veterans here in Albuquerque. I’ve been a school social worker for six years and have worked with at-risk youth for almost 20 years.
My background leads me to think in a systems-perspective. I believe it’s important to look for the connections between things. Helping students reach their full potential in school is the central focus of my job. My responsibilities include supporting students who receive special education services, as needed, helping students improve attendance and working on the student assistance team (SAT).
I also believe in a strength-based and academically-centered model. While some accommodations for students are a necessity, I believe all students have strengths they may not even realize that can help them in school. My goal is to help students and others recognize the strength of each student and then build on those strengths.
