The background information that outlines the reasons why Tina Harguess won the Arizona Charter Schools Association Teacher of the Year award credits her for setting high standards, maintaining a similar standard of expectations and for collaborating with the rest of the staff. The thing is, Harguess doesn’t believe any of the educational activities she engages in are any different than what any other teacher currently accomplishes.
In addition to teaching their students each day, writing lesson plans and connecting with parents, most Arizona teachers have gone through a myriad of district- and state-mandated training sessions. Many give up weekends or evenings to attend these trainings to better prepare themselves to provide the best opportunities for our students. For some, that would be sufficient. For others, it’s only the beginning.

I support the Gilbert Public Schools override. I also respect those who oppose it. Many are friends and neighbors and will remain so long after this election is over.
I’ve heard the most potent arguments in favor of the tax increase known as the “override,” and, as a conservative, I’m not convinced.
Residents of Mesa, Chandler and Gilbert participated in numerous projects within the city and school districts last weekend as part of the annual Make a Difference Day.
Last November the voters of Gilbert School District resoundingly defeated the override. This year, the GPS board has voted to give raises, increase the primary property tax rate, and is now asking for another tax increase, at a taxpayer cost of $328,000.
