I would like to thank John McCain, the Republican party and the people of Alaska for bringing Sarah Palin and her family to my attention, and that of the country. In these difficult times, it’s good to know that one can always count on the Palins for a good laugh. I can just picture her screaming, as son Track gestures to the neighbors, “Don’t you know who we are?!” Priceless.

I have experienced the Kyrene School District from many different aspects for the past 26 years. I was once a Kyrene kid and today I am a Kyrene parent and a Kyrene teacher. I proudly teach seventh-grade science at Akimel A-al Middle School. I have always been a Kyrene fan, but my loyalty and trust in the district has been strengthened immensely during this last school year. In November I was honored by the Arizona Educational Foundation when they named me one of their Educators for Excellence. In this role I have visited several districts around the state and met many teachers, administrators and parent leaders. The common theme when I meet someone new is how wonderful a district Kyrene is.
