Letter: Kirsten Baesler has the expertiseAs a homeowner, I call a qualified plumber or electrician when those items need attention. As a citizen interested in educating future leaders of our state and country, I certainly prefer a qualified individual who has a current and practicing background in education.
Kirsten Baesler has the qualifications to become the next North Dakota superintendent of public instruction. She has been a teacher, and now is serving as assistant principal and media specialist working with teachers and children in the Bismarck Public Schools. She has exhibited great leadership skills as a Mandan Public School Board member helping to pass two local school bond issues and serves as a director of the North Dakota School Board Association.
Baesler will deliver the professional expertise and leadership necessary to enhance an environment that encourages teachers, students, parents and others to provide an educational system to meet the future needs of an ever changing society.
I urge you to vote Baesler for superintendent of public instruction.
Anderson is a retired teacher.
