President Elect’s Speech to CUSD Board on 5/6

Dear Superintendent and School Board,

Today is a day for celebration. I can’t think of a better day than to announce the Teacher of the Year. We have incredible teachers at CUSD and each of them deserve to be recognized as a Teacher of the Year. I would like to personally thank all of the teachers in CUSD for their commitment to this most rewarding profession.  I am honored to be amongst you in this endeavor.
It is a day for celebration as the district and the union have come to some agreement with the financial aspects of bargaining. We can do incredible things when we work together. Now more than ever we need to have that commitment from both sides to get through the changes that are being imposed upon us. Communication is the foundation for this direction that we have to take. I hope as newly elected president that we can meet and focus on the needs of the teachers, community, and especially the kids.

President Elect’s Message — A Note from Dave

Dear Colleagues,

 I would personally like to thank Kai for all of his hard work while being in office for three years. Kai has done an incredible job and I only hope to continue with that same commitment. I want to say that I am truly honored to be elected as your CEA president. As president I will be fully disclosing my time and work that I do for CEA. In light of that I have included our dues structure for this year. If we are going to address any increase of changes in our budget then you as a member need to be fully aware of what that budget looks like. I feel that if we as a union follow this tact of transparency and communication then we can surely tell the district that we need them to do the same. I will be meeting with our superintendent, her executive cabinet, the school board and CEEF this summer to discuss our many concerns and issues. When these meetings take place you will be fully informed of the outcomes. I will post as variety of things on Facebook and tweet any information that needs to be seen immediately. I will need to have you accept my Facebook page and tweets. I hope that as we work together we can improve our morale. My door will always be open as I know that I work for you!

~Dave Villafana
