Roberto Rodriguez
President of the Sweetwater Education Association, the union that represents the over 1800 teachers, librarians, nurses and educators of the Sweetwater Union High School District. A high school teacher since 1987. I primarily teach Economics and US Government. Few carreers are more rewarding than education. However, today public education faces major challenges. So called reformers, privatizers and profiteers from all sides of the political spectrum approach public schools like wolves in sheep's clothing. As a teacher, I must be role model for my students and advocate for public education and educators in the community and the public arena. It's the only way to ensure that the promise of public education for future generations is fulfilled.
