67th Open Letter
From: TUSD Whistleblowers– Comprised of a Large Group of Extremely Concerned TUSD Administrators, Teachers, Retired Administrators and Parents, Grandparents
Subject: In Adelita Grijalva’s Head
Most of you know that I had announced that I would NOT run for another term on the TUSD Governing Board. After 14 years I had decided that it was time to spend more time with my children and husband. I have served on the Board through each of my pregnancies and have basically raised my three children while a Board member, which says a lot since my oldest child is entering middle school next school year. To say that I have missed quality time with my children and husband is an understatement and I owe a great debt to my mom for taking over my duties as mother for my children. I also owe a great debt to Pima County and Chuck Huckelberry for allowing me to leave work any time I want in order to do TUSD work (most of it is politicking). My County job is really like having a half-time job while getting paid full time. Lucky me!
