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! read more

(She is big in ignoring ethical standards and many TUSD policies when it serves her!). The public did not realize that she had voted to have her mother in-law, Olga Gomez, hired as a principal until it was already too late. She and HT Sanchez kept it a secret until Olga Gomez was hired. It was too late to do anything about it. Maybe. read more
