I am a fourth-generation resident of this community. I earned a master’s degree while working for TDCJ and have since focused on helping the mentally disabled.
For the past eight years, I have worked with every school district in Wilson, Karnes, and Atascosa counties gaining a firsthand account of how these various schools operate. Make no mistake, we at Poth excel!
Poth ISD is a vastly respected campus in this great state. Maintaining this integrity would be a primary obligation. Excellence comes from ensuring teachers are chosen regarding focus of knowledge without relying on standardized curriculums. Also, to best equip all our graduates we need more focus on vocational training ensuring the expanding demand of the local labor force is met.
Finally, we need a more conservative focus on accountability. Along with academic accountability, there must be fiscal accountability. Consideration must be given to the property owner whose taxes help fund the district’s operations. Poth ISD should survive like every family making it great. It must live within its means. Demanding extra money is not the way a typical family lives and it should not be the way for Poth ISD.
