School board members visit Kappa Gamma

DOWNEY – Members of Delta Kappa Gamma, International Society for Key Women Educators, recently hosted two of the three newly re-elected “lady” members of the DUSD school board to speak to them about their position, duties and goals for the students, teachers and employees of the school district.
Martha Sodetaini and Bobbi Samperi shared their stories with the women educators. (Nancy Swenson was unable to attend due to a previous commitment.)
They also heard Gordon Sodetani, son of Martha Sodetani, recite from memory two poems dedicated to teachers. In full character, he delivered Taylor Mali’s poems, “What Teachers Make” and “The Miracle Worker.”
Delta Kappa Gamma spends much of their efforts raising funds for scholarships for Downey students who would like to some day be teachers. If you are interested in joining this group of women educators, contact President Theresa Petit at
