I’M EXCITED TO SHARE THAT I’M RUNNING FOR SCHOOL BOARD IN LAUSD DISTRICT 5. I AM A PARENT OF AN LAUSD HIGH SCHOOL STUDENT IN THIS DISTRICT AND I HAVE TAUGHT ALL GRADE LEVELS, K-12, FOR 19 YEARS. WE NEED SOMEONE WHO KNOWS THE ISSUES OUR STUDENTS FACE FIRST HAND- THAT IS ME. WE NEED SOMEONE WHO IS COMMITTED TO THE STUDENTS AND FAMILIES OF LAUSD-NOT A POLITICIAN. I WILL BE THE FIRST LATINA MOM ON THIS SEAT IN 30 YEARS! IT’S TIME FOR A CHANGE.
My name is Karla Griego. I am an immigrant and mother from Northeast Los Angeles. I have also been a teacher and fighter for public education for 19 years. I have worked with the most vulnerable populations in LAUSD, teaching special education and elementary, middle and high school. I have also worked with parents to transform and bring resources to schools. At every stage in my career, I have worked to create spaces for community input. As the first Latina in this board seat in over 30 years, I will work to hold politicians accountable and make sure community is heard.
