Letter to the editor: Amber Baker will be ‘transformational leader’


Amber Baker will serve as a transformational leader on our school board. She has an immense capacity to build upon our district’s strengths and collaboratively lead positive change. She easily and genuinely connects with people from all walks of life and will unite our community to achieve a shared vision for our district.

As an educational leader, I value leading for equity and creating a positive and inclusive learning environment where all students succeed. As a parent of six children with different interests and strengths, I value opportunities for my children to flourish with their unique personalities and styles of learning. When voting for a school board member, I look for someone who shares these values. I am confident that Amber will lead our schools to be learning environments where all students are valued, feel a sense of belonging and experience success.

Having Amber as a member of our school board couldn’t make me more hopeful for the future of our schools and community.
