Mita is a former sales and technology executive and a mother of two children in Dallas public schools (ages 10 and 13). She has spent countless hours volunteering in district schools and her community, both as a parent and a community representative. Mita serves on the Travis Vanguard and Academy PTA Board and SBDM, the Stonewall Jackson SBDM, and on the board of Emanuel Community Center (a not-for-profit committed to helping the homeless and working poor). Most recently, Mita ran for Dallas ISD District 2 School Board Trustee. Though having lost the election by a narrow margin (42 votes or 0.72%) against a strongly-funded, establishment candidate, Mita continues to support and believe in public education and the power of community and families in our schools.
