He’ll make the right choices

I am thrilled to be supporting Alan Fernandes for school board. As a teacher, I had the privilege of serving with Alan on the Superintendent’s Advisory Committee on Special Education, as well as on the Birch Lane School Site Council. As a parent, I’ve shared my concerns about class size increase, the achievement gap, and equitable distribution of resources among elementary, junior and senior high schools.

From both of these perspectives, I’ve seen how deeply Alan cares, and how genuinely committed he is to finding meaningful solutions to the serious problems facing our schools.

Alan is an enthusiastic and dedicated community volunteer, who has worked to bring about positive change through his direct involvement with the schools, and other youth and community activities. His grasp of the complex issues facing our schools is impressive. He does his homework, and is able to discuss complicated budgetary and academic issues from multiple perspectives.

He is a gifted problem-solver, in large part due to his ability to listen carefully, defuse tension, and bring people together. As anyone who has worked with Alan will tell you, his respect for others and positive intent bring out the best in those around him.

Alan would bring a wealth of talents to the school board: intelligence, integrity, the ability to listen, learn, build consensus and find solutions. But even beyond that, what makes Alan my choice for school board is his clear focus on the diverse needs of our students. Alan understands that the needs of elementary, junior high and high school students differ, and will work to find a way to balance our limited resources to meet those needs. He is keenly aware of those kids who struggle in our schools due to academic, emotional and/or socio-economic issues, and will be an effective advocate for them.

I trust Alan to make the right choices to support our kids and improve our schools.
