" R U N N I N G F O R S C H O O L B O A R D requires good public speaking skills, empathy, thick skin, the ability to multitask and being well-organized (among many other skills)," says special education teacher and school board hopeful Telly Tse. "This is why educators are naturally great candidates for this very important position!" Tse is running for Glendale Unified School District Board of Education, Trustee Area A, in the March 5 Primary Elec- tion — one of 2,000 school board seats that voters will decide on statewide in 2024. A Beverly Hills Education Association member as well as former member of the CTA and NEA Board of Directors, Tse says he developed strong ties with educa- tors in Glendale through his union work and involvement as a coach in youth soccer and softball. While Tse has previously considered running, he says the time is right for his leadership and experience. "My hope for my own children and every child that attends Glendale Unified schools is that they graduate from our district with high academic achievement and strong social skills, and as independent and critical thinkers ready to be productive mem- bers of our democracy," says Tse, who is endorsed by Glendale Teachers Association. "We can make this happen by prioritizing racial and social justice, investing in our educators and staff, and implementing stronger and wide-ranging communication in our district." Special education teacher and CTA Board of Directors mem- ber Angela Normand is seeking reelection in March to the Alameda County Board of Education, Area 2.
