The HTHNCPA Current Board & Chairs


Gabby Barazza


This is my 8th year at HTHNC. I have an 8th grader and a 10th grader and an alum who graduated last year. I originally joined as Secretary so the PA would have enough board members and not have to be dissolved.  Then I chose to stay because I enjoyed getting to know our community of teachers, students, and parents and helping out in any way I could (my favorite annual event is Village Fest!). The most rewarding part of the PA is getting to support our teachers that do so much for our students. 

Outside of the PA, I am an office manager, love to watch movies,and read a good book at the beach. I'm originally from Argentina and speak fluent Spanish.

This is our 7th year at High Tech! We started out in 6th grade, and our eldest is now a senior! I love serving as the HTHNCPA Treasurer to help the school in a positive way and making decisions that benefit all of our kids.


​When I'm not working with the HTHNCPA, I work as a Mortgage Loan Officer and enjoy spending time with my family -- camping, jet skiing, dirt bike riding, snow skiing and taking part in all the great outdoor activities we have here in San Diego. Prior to living in S.D., I lived in 5 countries and became an American Citizen in 2016!

I've been involved with the Parent Association ever since my daughter started at HTeNC in 2013 (starting with the HTe Family Collaborative).  This is my second year as PA Secretary and I am so happy to be part of a wonderful group of parent volunteers! 


By day I'm an architect for retail & restaurant developments all over Southern California.  I love gardening, crafting and baking which tends to get out of hand.  We have a big yellow lab named Lt. Dan (you can see him hanging out my car window all around town) and a house bunny named Captain Nibbles. You can follow us @maxandotis.
