Christine Deane was appointed as a board trustee by the Contra Costa County Board of Education, on Wednesday, May 7, 2014. Deane was one of five candidates who were interviewed by the Board that evening. She replaces the former Area 2 Trustee Ellen Elster, who unexpectedly passed away this past March.  

Deane brings a very impressive resume of experience, knowledge, and education to the board.  She is a 34-year teacher, now retired, who taught primarily in public schools in Contra Costa County. During her years of teaching, she also served in many other capacities in education: advisor, mentor, committee member and chair, presenter, and representative.

“I welcome the opportunity to serve the community by working for its students as a trustee on the Contra Costa County Board of Education,” reports Deane. “I am confident that I am a good fit for the Board because I have spent my entire career developing skills, which are needed to do the job well.” 

As the Contra Costa County board trustee of Area 2, Deane represents Crockett, Hercules, Lafayette, Moraga, Orinda, Port Costa, Rodeo, and parts of Alamo, Concord, Martinez, Pacheco, Pinole, Pleasant Hill, Richmond, and Walnut Creek. Her term as a board trustee will conclude in November 2014, when she will have the option to run in the 2014 election for a four-year term.   

Deane obtained her bachelor of science degree in family relations and child development from Syracuse University and earned her masters of science in correctional counseling from Chapman University. In addition, she has earned a number of credentials and certifications. 

Deane resides in Lafayette.
