"I grew up in Salinas and left to live in Minnesota for awhile. I am very happy to be back in Salinas with my family, and back to the beautiful California weather. I have two daughters, both in college, one in Minnesota and the other at Cal Poly-SLO. I taught for over 20 years before moving into administration. I went to the University of Montana, San Jose State, St. Mary's University of Minnesota, and Hamline University."- Libby Duethman
