I voted today!
But unfortunately, because of my district, I didn’t get to vote for one of my favorite candidates for school board. However, if you live in District 3, you have the chance to vote for Christine Bernstein for LAPS School Board.
I first met Christine when we were both teachers at Pojoaque Schools. She is an innovative, committed and passionate high school teacher and I know she will bring just as much energy to the school board as she does to the classroom. I’ve witnessed her in action and seen the way she always prioritizes students’ well-being and this to me means more than anything in an effective school board member.
In addition to approving school district policies, budgeting and hiring the superintendent, school board members have the primary responsibility for the welfare and success of our Los Alamos students, and I trust Christine to always keep their best interests in mind when debating such weighty issues as school safety, how to support the mental health of our students and ensuring that we are prioritizing ALL students in our district. I hope you will join me in supporting Christine for school board.
A vote for Christine Bernstein is a vote for students.
