Elda Molina is administrative secretary to the supervisor of the Transition Services Unit in Montgomery County Public Schools. She has worked for the school system for 11 years. She graduated from Huntington Park High School in California and earned more than 200 credits at California State University Los Angeles. Her introduction to Side by Side through her pastor was “love at first sight,” as she always has had a passion to help out families and community. Elda was a leader in creating “La Guía para Padres” at Laurel Elementary School with a group of Hispanic moms. Also, she has been emcee of Side by Side’s former Family Academy, provided translation during parent-teacher conference night at some schools, and I did some home visits as a follow-up to Great Start workshop evenings. She loves the fact that Side by Side is a powerful tool to change the lives of young students and their parents.
