We are approaching two years since I stood at the podium in the Tempe Union Governing Board room for the first time to introduce a resolution surrounding mental health and suicide prevention.
Running for Tempe Union is a personal story for me, as I am a middle school art teacher in Tempe.
I have become increasingly more and more intrigued by the American obsession over national politics, and greatly disappointed in how divided our great nation has become.
Recent well-funded attacks on Prop 208 have confused Arizona voters, but this initiative is a lifeline for Arizona children. Education has long been a concern in Arizona which has been made acute by drastic cuts to education funding over the past few decades.
I love our Tempe Union community. I have been an Arizona resident for over 30 years and attended Tempe High School and Arizona State University. I am a working-class mother, not just to my two sons but to our entire district family.
I have lived in Tempe with my husband, Nick and our three sons for 17 years.
As I look back on my journey to my position as Governing Board member for Tempe Union High School District, I’m amazed at the valuable experiences I have had in this community.
When Paul Maryniak, the editor of The Ahwatukee Foothills News, offered school board candidates a chance to write a column for the paper to allow community members insight into those running in the race, I felt challenged to settle on one issue to write about.
