Hi, I’m Dr. Cheryl James-Ward, I’ve
been an educator for over 25 years, serving as a math teacher,
vice principal, principal, supervisor of school’s, principal coach, and professor
at San Diego State in the Department of Educational Leadership. I’ve shifted my
attention, my primary focus now to high schools, how to create a high school for
the 21st Century. Our students today have to be prepared for a world very different
than ours, but still have the basic skill sets that
we’ve had in the past. This means that our students must have a repertoire of
technical skills, they have to be flexible, empathetic, and have humility.
Let’s move education to the 21st Century, let’s prepare our students for the
workforce that they will live in in 2030 and 2050. Thank you for your time, and
remember, vote for me Dr. Cheryl James-Ward for the San Dieguito School Board.
