Principal Officer

Ms. Cherie Takemoto

BIO

For the past 14 years, Cherie Takemoto has served as executive director of the Parent Educational Advocacy Training Center (PEATC), Virginia's parent support, training and information center. The organization is committed to building better futures for children, their families and the professionals who serve them by providing education, support, training and state-of-the-art, easy-to-understand products and publications. Much of Takemoto's work at PEATC has focused on building partnerships that increase understanding of the myriad of problems families of children with disabilities face: especially those without the knowledge or resources it often takes to build a successful life for their children who are the most vulnerable children of all. Takemoto believes that the key to success for children with disabilities is respectful partnerships between parents, schools and communities.
