Mia Tswago, Beacon Director at Presdio Beacon Community School

Mia was born and raised in southern CA, and has adopted the Bay Area as a second home. She comes into this role with 8+ years in education, ranging from Pre-K to 12th grade. Mia is excited to bring her experience to the Beacon at Presidio Middle School.

Here are some appreciations from her Executive Director, and the San Francisco Beacon Initiative:

“Mia finds ways to make great things happen at her school in true partnership with teachers, principals and counselors. She leads her school team with positive energy and enthusiasm for the community schools approach. We can’t wait to see what is in store for Presidio Middle School’s Beacon.” – Michelle Cusano, Executive Director of Richmond District Neighborhood Center

“I really like Mia’s passion towards her role and where life has taken her in this field! How she utilizes her experience in youth development has been wonderful to understand. She strives for excellence and works very hard towards her goals. Also, her awareness and efforts towards self-care through travel is absolutely inspiring! I am excited to see what she accomplishes this year!” -Erica Hernandez, Program Manager of SFBI

Way to go, Mia!
