Marisa Wood is a public school teacher, mother and grandmother, and has spent her last 20 years serving the Bakersfield community that she calls home. Marisa knows that this district – and all of its families – deserve someone fighting for them in Washington, not a career politician who cares about his rich donors and fighting partisan battles.
Advocating for children is Marisa’s passion. She teaches English at a public school where many of her students are underprivileged and for a large portion, English is a second language. But Marisa does more than just teach: she mentors, she counsels, and she helps these young people strive for a bright future.
