Pamela Loo

Deputy Director

Pamela Loo has lived in San Mateo for 27 years and moved to California from her small town in Southern
Illinois in 1981 to attend UCLA. Most of her career was in the financial sector and she enjoyed working
for the Hillsdale High School Foundation in San Mateo before retiring early in 2013. She is ecstatic to have an opportunity to give back again to a school district working for PiE.

Pamela believes in public education and has always been actively volunteering in her children’s sports,
music, and schools starting from preschool through high school. She became a 3rd generation educator,
teaching 5th grade like her mother. Her father was the Superintendent of their School District and her
grandfather was the Dean of Education at SIU (In Illinois). She holds a BA in Economics from UCLA and a
teaching credential from Notre Dame de Namur University.
