Endorse Tom

Teaching kids is Tom's life’s work. As a teacher and a coach, Tom has always considered it a privilege to serve California’s children.

Whether it’s in the classroom, before and after school, or for the past three years as State Superintendent of Public Instruction, Tom's guiding principle is simple: doing what’s right for kids.

California’s schools are making progress. We’ve stopped the painful budget cuts and begun to invest in our children and our schools again. Graduation rates are at an all-time high and test scores are near their peak.

Of course, there’s much more to do – expanding career training, updating school technology, expanding access to the arts, and helping every child get off to the right start with access to quality preschool programs.

Please take a moment and join Tom's team today. And let's help Tom keep working to build a brighter future for California’s kids.

Tom genuinely cares about California students-not about profiting from them and he’s definitely not fooled by the latest education bandwagons that comes rolling down mainstreet.

We appreciate Tom’s fine efforts on behalf of education in California, especially his initiatives to promote environmental education and sustainability in our schools.

We had the opportunity to meet you in person at the Luau party in Pittsburg, Mary Queen of the World Church last June 28, 2014.

As an educator, like my father, I know that you understand the passion and challenges faced by those who attempt to prepare the young for the world they will soon inherit. Please come to visit our campus faculty and the Democratic Club of the Conejo Valley to share your vision for this future.

Being a teacher himself, Tom understands what is happening in the classroom and in education in general. Only an educator qualifies to fill the position of Superintendent of Public Instruction and Tom is that educator.

Tom is a wonderful education leader.

Tom, we chatted at the 2014 California PTA Convention. You wanted to know more about our 83+ year-old Parent Education Program here in our El Monte Union High School District. Please come on down to see our marvelously successful educational program, with a trained Early Childhood Instructor, her trained Instructional Assistant, 24 children, and 24 caring adult family members. Not only does each family, whose children in attendance are from one to four years of age learn basic pre-K skills, but English as a Second Language as well.

Summer Parent Education Classes begin on Tuesday, June 17.

I extend to you an open invitation to come down and spend an exciting, informative time in an educational program that should be in every district statewide.

Appreciative of your public service,

Esthela Torres de Siegrist

Vice President El Monte Union High School District Board of Trustees


P.S. As a grampa, you will be truly amazed.

Tom is a teacher, and knows what is needed to provide HEALTHY (emotionally, physically, academically) school environments for ALL kids!!

We need Supeintendent Torlakson to continue to lead and be the voice for teachers and children in California. He is our advocate and understands the issues. Tom is not afraid to stand up to politicians and demand what’s right for schools.

Do you have yard signs and car signs? It would be my pleasure to distribute them in San Diego. If you sent me 50, I could probably get all of them into yards!

Tom is by the best and most qualified candidate who has the interests of both students and teachers. We need a strong independent leader like Tom who won’t kowtow to special interests or the federal government.
