The following is a statement from Randall Freeman, candidate for Menifee School Board...
I have filed papers to seek election to the Governing Board in the November 4th election to fill Mr. Twyman’s seat on the Menifee Union School District Governing Board. I am requesting that you consider supporting me for this very important position.If you're a candidate for a school district that serves Menifee, submit your statement, of any length, and I'll publish it here.
My wife, Karen, and I have lived in the Menifee area since our marriage in 1993. Our four daughters are attending schools in the MUSD – Daniela will be attending Bell Mountain Middle School and Sarah, Holly, and Megan attend Freedom Crest Elementary School. My desire is to serve the school district in which they are students as a volunteer. This is an excellent way in which to do so.
I am a parent and a veteran educator. I have served as an elementary teacher in a neighboring district for what will soon be my 20th year with them. My particular area of expertise is in the area of early childhood education, expertise that I believe will well serve the Governing Board. I am a National Board Certified Teacher, Early Childhood Generalist (2002) and am well into my fourth year of my doctoral program in early childhood education. I will complete my doctorate in May 2010.
I am a contributing member in the local community. Since 1998, as Public Schools Chairman for the local Masonic Lodge, I have supervised several programs which have benefited our children and our schools in the MUSD. We have a Child ID Program which has identified over 4,000 children free of charge. We have provided backpacks to over 400 kindergarten students in the MUSD and have done cornerstones for several of the Menifee USD schools, including Freedom Crest Elementary School and Oak Meadows Elementary School.
It is my desire to better serve our community, especially our children. I can think of no better way in which to do this than to serve as a member of the Governing Board. Thank you for your attention to this matter.
