Serving the Torrance community on the TUSD Board of Education has been one of the greatest honors of my life.


Besides being a dedicated Board member, I am also active in California PTA at the state level.


I have lived in this community for almost 30 years now. I am also a parent. I care about Torrance and I care about the children of our community receiving the best education possible.  


While on the Board, I have spent the past six years diligently working to make sure that our schools strive for constant excellence. My focus as a Board member has been to create an environment where every child has the opportunity to succeed.


I have overseen the implementation of many physical improvements to our schools, including elementary school science labs, middle school gymnasiums, high school auditoriums, and a district-wide aquatic center.


All of this was done with the highest level of fiscal responsibility. TUSD has been recognized as one of the most fiscally responsible school districts in California, all while maintaining high academic standards resulting in a High School Graduation rate of over 95%.


For dedicated, compassionate and experienced leadership vote to re-elect Martha Deutsch on November 6, 2018.

"Barry and I made the decision 23 years ago to invest in the future and purchase a home in Torrance because of the focus on quality public education.

Marissa and Ben attended Riviera Elementary School, Richardson Middle School and South High School. They graduated and continued their education at four year universities."
