Focus on Elections

Kristen Taylor: After working professionally for more than forty years, I recently retired from the Carbon School District. I am one of those extremely lucky people who loved my work, so my work also became my passion. I am still very interested in the success of both students and teachers. As a teacher, I had many opportunities to attend professional development trainings, work on school and district committees, participate at the state level as both a participant and a trainer, and even work on an international committee as part of my obligation for a grant from the International Reading Association which gave us the opportunity to review books and add them to our school libraries. I would bring this interest and experience to a position on our local school board. I recognize that schools, teachers, and parents face increasingly difficult challenges, but I also believe strongly in an old adage that says all of us are smarter than one of us. If we commit to work as a team, dedicate ourselves to compromise for a greater good, and always remember that students are truly our number one priority, we can maintain quality and improve education for all students. We must adhere to budgets, aggressively recruit highly qualified new teachers, and provide those new teachers with trained mentors. Finally, we must work to support a positive, affirmative workplace for all of our teachers, principals, and support staff. Young people need a quality education to face the challenges of the future. They need well-prepared teachers and a supportive community. They need all of us. I would appreciate your vote on Election Day.
