Ravenswood started to experience positive changes when Trustee Gaona first came, and it got really transformed when Fitch and Sobomehin joined her. She was no longer the only one who knew that Hernandez and her family were not the right thing for the district, that there was no transparency, and in fact there were many issues going on, but the other board members tried to ignore them, that other board members were not listening to the teachers and to the community who asked so loud NOT to renew the former superintendent's contract, and later it cost the district big money to get her out. Thanks to these three board members we not have transparency, Hernandez is out, many employees and teachers (not all) are happy with the new leadership. I really hope that the board members are careful who they bring in, so we do not go back to the way it used to be.
Great Job: Sobomehin, Fith and Gaona. Sorry you have to leave Trustee Fitch you will be missed. I hope Pulido and Wilson have learned from you how to do their job better.
