We. The Parents Employed by the Colorado School System Work in a Hostile Work Environment.

Dear Governor Jared Polis,


“My ability to focus as a father on making sure that my son is safe and not being so angry with the administration, principal and the superintendent because of their lack of empathy and concern for his well-being,” Kleckler told Steamboat Pilot & Today on Tuesday, Feb. 8. “I felt like I could no longer be effective as a school board member without wanting to strangle the administration.”

How does this sit with you? Do you think there is something wrong here? Because I do. It isn’t safe for children to go to school and career educators like myself and these parents are being pushed to their limits.

How are we going to fix our schools without having to engage more lawyers and endanger more of our children’s lives? I know that’s been the way school business is done in Colorado and it’s WRONG. These are our children.

I’m still here ready to work for Colorado when you’re ready for me. I know we need the help.

First and foremost, I am a mother, but I am also an educator and an activist. I've been told by my closest friends that I am a fighter, but I actually despise that part of my identity because I really don't enjoy fighting. I write about whatever is on my mind, which feels like a big mess sometimes. I mostly think about my kids and the people they are and how to help them become who they want to be in this world. I love them more than anything in this world. Sometimes I write about giftedness, autism, trauma, schools, mental health and chronic illness because those are all things that affect me. I write about my own life and the people in it and I try not to hurt people's feelings in the writing process. I hope what I write touches peoples hearts and opens people’s minds because I think people in our world need to have more understanding and compassion. I'm to tell it like it is.
