Private and public school information: Having my job as a Marin County Realtor for many years has given me lots of exposure to schools in the public and private sectors as well as having raised children who have attended both public and private schools.  I would be happy to talk with you about my experiences. I had the privilege of working with all the schools in the Ross Valley in the student Arts Festival I chaired for years in San Anselmo and I also served on the Board of Directors for San Dominico private school.
