“If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader” – John Quincy Adams.
The quote encapsulates Antioch Unified School District’s Superintendent Stephanie Anello.
AEA (teachers), CSEA (classified staff), and AMA (management staff) all came together to voice their support for her selection of the position. She is the School Board’s only employee and she is our only leader. The same entities also came together to endorse Board position openings in the coming election. You can view their endorsements on the #AMA– Antioch Managenent Association Facebook page. They came together because they value our Superintendent.
“Before you are a leader, success is all about growing yourself. When you become a leader, success is all about growing others”. – Jack Welch
Ms Anello has worked in the district, over many years, in a variety of capacities giving her a long rich history that lends itself to a high level of trust. Part of what makes her trustworthy in the position is the genuine concern she has for the students of Antioch Unified School District. And the relationships she has developed with employees at every level.
When all 3 employee groups support a leader, you know there is something special there. She gets out to sites, spends time with students, meets families, embraces the staff and applauds hard work at every level.
She has been instrumental in changing the narrative about AUSD by promoting positive conversations, videos, images, and stories that produce evidence of the great things happening every day in our schools.
Very shortly it will be time to vote. And there are 3 School Board positions available. Given that the Board will be her governance body it is important that you the voter understand how much we value her leadership. She is what this District needs and it’s important that her leadership not be impeded by those who are more interested in their own self-importance.
When you vote please consider strongly only choosing candidates that will support her promotion of high standards, increased achievement, stronger relationships, fiscal responsibility and success for all. And please choose those candidates who speak highly of the district they wish to govern And who do not vote NO to every proposed solution for the district.
Give Superintendent Anello the time to demonstrate her leadership by ensuring a strong board whose interest are the students of this District and it’s employees.
Diane Gibson-Gray, Gary Hack, Joy Motts, Mike Burkholder are ready to support the positive direction. Fernando Navarro is a detriment to this possibility.
Principal – AUSD
