EDITOR:

The San Marcos Educators organization recently met and released their endorsement for the upcoming San Marcos CISD School Board race.

After interviewing candidates and voting, teachers decided to endorse Michelle Hamilton for District 5 trustee. In order to move our San Marcos school system forward, our member believes we need effective leaders to serve on the school board. Dr. Hamilton’s career as a public educator brings a unique perspective to critical issues facing our school district.

We saw in Hamilton a strong commitment to public education and the highest standards of achievement; the ability to work with diverse groups, including other board members, teachers and community organizations; respect for differing points of view; a desire to advance accountability and achieve positive academic results; and a vested interest in the direction of our school community as the parent of a student in the district.

Hamilton is an associate professor in Texas State’s College of Education. She holds a doctorate in exercise science and is currently the Director for the Center for P-16 Initiatives. The members of the San Marcos Educators organization support and endorse Hamilton for the District 5 seat on the board.
