Our PTA is made up of hard-working parents & teachers who pool their talents to provide practical support for our school.


Those listed below volunteered to provide leadership this year. Get to know their names and faces, and feel free to ask them if you have questions.


Natasha Khokhar - Co-President



I am a parent to three kids in Albany schools, including a first grader at Oceanview, a fourth grader at Cornell, and a sixth grader at AMS. I am a credentialed Special Education teacher and used to teach elementary students with learning differences in Oakland. I presently serve on the SchoolCARE board, and it seems I can't stay away from being involved with Education in some capacity or the other. I am passionate about equal opportunities for learning for all students and believe it is just as important to support the social emotional development that happens on the playground. I am looking forward to putting my energy into connecting people, supporting the Cornell families, and creating green spaces for our community. 


Derrick Wu - Co-President



I am the father of two young children, including a 2nd grader at Cornell. I have previously taught science to 7th and 8th grade students and served as a medical/surgical resident. Currently, I'm a stay-at-home dad and an avid gardener.


Sage Weaver - Secretary



I moved to Albany last year and love the support the PTA provides to the schools. I have a stepson in 1st grade and work full-time in healthcare as an occupational therapist in hospitals. As a family we love camping and anything involving water! I am looking forward to serving as your PTA Secretary this school year.
