The voters in the Edmonds School District board race have a refreshing opportunity to choose someone who is both high-energy and student-focused. Cathy Baylor is a candidate in Position 4 on the Edmonds School District board. Cathy is a nationally certified music teacher who has a BA degree from the University of Washington with an emphasis in education, music and Spanish. She has lived in south Snohomish County for 49 years, and graduated from Lynnwood High School. She has been a volunteer for 30 years in school and community education programs.
Her music students, both young and old, give her rave reviews for her preparation, enthusiasm and the joyful way in which she encourages them to succeed. Cathy recognizes the advantages we have in the Edmonds School District for being the diverse community that we are. She supports a multicultural curriculum in humanities classes to prepare our students for the real world. She would be a voice for the arts because it is proven that an arts education builds critical and creative thinking skills that lead to other academic successes. Cathy Baylor would be a voice for the teachers because they are the key to the success of our students.
I encourage you to vote for Cathy Baylor for Edmonds School District Director, Position 4. She will represent all of our students in guiding them to becoming successful adults in our community.
