Sasha Travassos

I am the mother of a 2021 HTHNC graduate and also a current HTMNC 8th grader and we have been at HTHNC since the inauguration of our middle school! I have volunteered in many capacities over the years, most recently as Treasurer to our PTA for 2 years. We have had some challenges in building our community of parents in the last year, but our mission now is to welcome and connect as many families to our school and community events as possible! I am honored to have been asked to step in at the last moment to be the PTA president and I look forward to an amazing school year!
Outside of this role, I am a Mortgage Broker and enjoy camping, hiking, skiing and any adventure with my family!

Gabby Barazza
Vice President

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.

Hello, my name is Vera Gibbons. My two sons have attended High Tech since they were in 1st and 2nd grade. They are now 8th and 9th graders. I have enjoyed many years of volunteering as a parent in different capacities.


I have been on some amazing field trips over the years and will always treasure those experiences with my sons. I am now excited to volunteer at a more official level as the Parent Association Treasurer. 

CherylAnn Morgan

I am new to HTH, however, I have 4 kids, and have been involved in a board or parent association in some capacity. This will be our second year, and I am excited to be helping out.  


By day I'm a Marketing Director for a Southern California Manufacturer and am well versed in website design, social media, and anything digital. If you have watched Boss Baby or Croods you can find some of my work on their social media channels. In my spare time, I love creating art, hiking, and traveling with my family.

Hi, I’m Annie, the Parliamentarian. My son has been going to High Tech High Village since 1st grade. He is going into 9th grade and I can’t believe I have a Freshman in high school.


This is my first year on the Parent’s Association and I am so happy to be part of it. I am so excited for this school year.
