Changes happen, and we are left wondering what to do. As community members, we can speak up and help make things better in and for our community:
1. Write to Governor Ducey and Arizona Legislators requesting increased funding and streamlined policies to and for our education system (even with re-allocated and streamlined funds, we are not able to provide the best services to our community);
2. Write to Governing Board members requesting (a) an updated salary schedule that takes into account all years of experience in the school setting, and all units/hours (including alternative measures) of training and readiness programs for each position, and (b) streamlined policies and processes;
3. Share personal stories that embody compassion, empowerment, financial sense, and common sense.
I am a mother, teacher, and advocate of and for building strong relationships and ending systemic domestic abuse in our communities.
Viva! (la revolucion!)
