Student, Consultant, Teacher, Parent, PTO President, Volunteer and Community Member. These are some of the roles I have played in the years that I have been associated with PUSD. These roles have prepared me for my role as Governing Board Member.
I remember roaming the halls of many Pomona schools as a student.
Having teachers, administrators and support staff pat me on the back and offer words of encouragement. It was the staff of Pomona Unified that helped shape who I am today. I care about our staff.
As a Consultant and an ROP Teacher, I have been able to work with the students and staff to offer that same encouragement that was once offered to me. I have learned so much from both the students and staff. I will continue to learn.
As a parent, volunteer and PTO President, I have had to deal with many issues and roadblocks that face our children. We are encouraged to take an active role, yet discouraged when we do just that. We need not be silenced when it comes to our children and their education. I have put countless hours into my kids’ education, raising funds because the district isn’t taking care of their responsibility. As your Board Member, I will to do the same for your kids.
I pledge to fight for what is right and to always keep our kids’ interest at heart. Our kids are our future and we need to do everything possible to encourage and nurture their educational needs.
It is time that we put the kids first. It is time that the district supports the programs that they put in place. I will fight to make this happen.
As a community member, I want Pomona and Diamond Bar to flourish. We need to be a leader in education. If our families are leaving the district, I will find out why and I will do everything possible to retain our families.
What I plan to do, will not be easy. We will need to work together to accomplish our goals. I will need to listen to my constituents, to be an effective leader. I will listen and we will be successful.
On Nov. 3, stand alongside me and demand change from PUSD.
Demand to be heard, demand Frank Guzman!
I am Frank Guzman, the Teachers’ Choice and the Parents’ Voice. I ask for your vote.
