Dr. Rona Zollinger, Ph.D.

Dr. Rona Zollinger, Ph.D., is new to OMI, but she has spent the last 18 years in Martinez Unified School District developing, facilitating, and managing high school service-learning, work-based learning, social and emotional learning, and career pathway programs. She brings with her a background imbedded with experience in navigating Career Pathways Trust and Career Technical Education Incentive grant programs and reporting. At OMI, she is immediately taking over the CTEIG Round 2 reporting and working with teachers to align the current course offerings and ensure that curriculum includes the key elements of a high-quality CTE program. Overall, her goals are to:


  • Ensure institutional sustainability and student access to the Engineering Design and Information Communications Technology pathways.
  • Develop one to three additional pathways over the next three years.
  • Develop a comprehensive application of work-based learning opportunities for all OMI students.
  • Connect community and build employer relationships to support each pathway.
