Rhonda Guaderrama understands that teachers are facing incredible challenges as they work to teach in the “new normal.” She will work to support educators as they navigate these uncharted waters. Now is the time to think innovatively about our educational system not just for the present, but for the years to come.
As a Carlsbad Unified School Board Member, her priorities are to ensure:
• Schools are safe and healthy learning environments for all students, teachers and classified personnel
• That all students receive an equitable education
• That all students graduate from high school with a plan for the future
Ms. Guaderrama believes that there has never been a more important time than now to advocate for quality education for all children. She is running for the governing board of the Carlsbad Unified School District because she is passionate about making a difference in the lives of youth. Having worked in youth development for over 13 years, she has seen first-hand the effects the pandemic is having on our children and their education.
Ms. Guaderrama sees this period of upheaval as an opportunity to make bold choices and create new ways of thinking about education, as well address educational inequity that has been exacerbated by the crisis. “English language learners, students receiving special services, and other vulnerable populations, that are already challenged on a normal day, are falling through the cracks even more and are being disproportionately affected by the current crisis,” says Ms. Guaderrama.
My experience, integrity, commitment and dedication to children, and incredible work ethic will serve me well as a School Board member. With your help, I can make a difference!
