Letter: Gibson the best choice for Mascenic
To the editor:
I am writing this letter in support of the re-election of Chad Gibson to the Mascenic Regional School Board. Chad’s two prior terms as a board member, his current experience as board chairman, and his recognition by the NH School Board Association make him a logical, secure choice for the future of our SAU; however it is much more than these credentials that makes Chad the best choice for our schools.
As a teacher in our district, and the mom of a first grader, I’ve seen Chad’s commitment to students, teachers, and the future of our schools, firsthand. Chad puts countless hours into his role as school board chair, going far beyond the job requirements and certainly beyond the compensation. He researches best educational practices, makes data driven decisions, and is committed to recruiting and retaining highly qualified teachers who are dedicated to their profession.
Chad and his fellow board members have worked to make sure that our schools are places of rigor and relevance and are successfully preparing every student for college and careers. The Mascenic district has made great educational strides during Chad’s tenure on our board; high standards are being set, goals are being actualized, and students are achieving at high levels.
Re-electing Chad Gibson will ensure that our schools stay on a path of continual improvement, which is just what our teachers — and most importantly, our kids — need.
