CANDIDATES FILED:
Alyssa Tison – I grew up in South Central Los Angeles, on 57th and Figueroa. I went to John Muir Middle School, the place where I realized the injustices in our education system, especially in our communities. I remember sitting in classrooms where teachers would not teach. I was one of the few who was able to “escape” and “make it”. However, I truly believe that education is not a privilege; it is a right. It is because of my experiences that pushed me to become an educator. My experiences led me to come back to my community, teach here and become more involved in understanding what I can do to create change, especially in the education of our youth. This is why I am running for the Education Representative position. I want to broaden my involvement in Education and use the skills that I have attained to deepen progress in our community.
