Nine years ago, when we moved to Fresno, we enrolled our three children in Fresno Unified School District schools. At that time, I met Michelle Arax Asadoorian at one of the elementary schools, where we had girls in the same second-grade class.
Having known Michelle for nine years and served on school-related committees with her, I confidently and enthusiastically support her for the Fresno Unified board. She has not only dedicated her professional life to Fresno Unified as a teacher, but has had a leadership role in several schools as a parent.
She has never been known to sit idly by leaving others to do the work. She is an intelligent, independent thinker who is also a team player. Michelle is certainly qualified for this position and will provide great insight and leadership if elected.
