Re: “'TUSD Kids First' Amasses $35,000 War Chest From Large Donations

To the previous poster: I again appeal to you and others for a civil discourse that we'd be proud to share with our children and in our classrooms. Let's stop making disparaging remarks and actually talk to one another.

Re: “'TUSD Kids First' Amasses $35,000 War Chest From Large Donations

I have only ever posted here regarding the ideas and people I support. The welfare and education of our students drives me, as I'm sure is true of many who follow and get involved in local politics, including the TUSD Governing Board. I really wish we could have a civil conversation about how to continue to make things better for our kids. They need us to be examples of civil discourse, not mudslinging. Please and thank you.

Re: “'TUSD Kids First' Amasses $35,000 War Chest From Large Donations

I don't know who the other posters here are because they are far from transparent. I'm a teacher, 3rd grade. I am spending every spare minute and dollar I have to support Kristel Foster and Cam Juarez because they support my students. My kids don't have internet at home, but my school now has 5 Computers On Wheels, filled with laptops that allow them the same access that we all take for granted. They also have rich libraries of multicultural books that arrived two summers ago. They read these books and see themselves, wherever they're from. I support this board and its "3-person board majority" that the previous poster opposes. Please remember, I am a teacher. Please.

Re: “Babylon Market: Super Market

I LOVE Babylon! It's my go to spot when I need any Middle Eastern ingredient and often provides a delicious pick-up-on-the-way-home dinner for this family.

Re: “Stegeman Carried Petitions For Campos-Fleenor and Hicks In TUSD Board Race

As a TUSD teacher for the past seven years, I have come to respect and appreciate the educational views and leadership Adelita Grijalva has brought to the board. At the same time, I have found Mike Hicks and Mark Stegeman to be divisive figures who do not usually represent my views regarding how best to serve TUSD, our students, and our teachers. I appreciate David Safier's insightful commentary here and will be voting for Grijalva and Darland, as will most of my colleagues.

Re: “Strange Political Bedfellows In The TUSD Board Election

This teacher is voting for Darland and Grijalva, along with David Garcia for Superintendent of Public Instruction. Thank you, David Safier, for your insightful article!
