Supports Kathryn Cohen for school board as leader with empathy for kids and families who listens and provides answers

To the editor:

I am so thrilled to write this letter to the editor to publicly show my support for Kathryn Cohen, who is running for one of the two open board of education seats.

The short of it—Kathryn personifies a leader. She leads with her actions, her capability to listen, her willingness to answer questions, dare I say “no b.s. attitude,” her attention to the details of what matters most and her high empathy for kids and families. She is a unique example of a person who can dive into the nitty gritty data of test scores, financial spreadsheets, legal documents and then go sit in the front row of a show to cheer on kids she’s never met (and probably go meet their parents afterwards because she must always spread her positivity!).

Kathryn wants the best for all of us. Her experiences and struggles within the special education world make her a unique voice that lives and breathes advocacy every single day. This isn’t a buzz statement or a ploy. Kathryn is dedicated to all learners. She has pledged to keep the children of the district in the forefront of every decision she can possibly make, if elected. I have learned from working on the SEPTA board with her that when she gives her word, it is binding. I trust that she will lead with high integrity and make Pelham very proud to have voted her into this valuable position.

I’m keeping this short and sweet for a reason. When it’s right, you don’t need to over sell. I fully put my name behind Kathryn and endorse her wholeheartedly.

Get to know Kathryn if you haven’t had the chance. She will impress you, and dare I say, surprise a lot of you!
