Kristopher A. Kerns
My name is Kristopher A. Kerns and I am running for the Tacoma School Board Director Position 2. Having been born and raised in Tacoma, I am excited to have the opportunity to work with you and our community to help make Tacoma Public Schools the best in the State.
About me: I am a husband and proud parent of three children, two of whom are enrolled in Tacoma Public Schools. I am currently serving as the Vice President of our PTA at Point Defiance Elementary. I am also actively involved in volunteering, coaching, and mentoring children and youth throughout our community about the importance of education. I hope to offer a fresh perspective to the Tacoma Public School Board in order to help advance the status quo of education in our community. My academic background has been largely in the pursuit of a career in health sciences. My unique academic and professional careers have afforded me the necessary tools and experience to seek out this leadership position. I hope to actively advocate and pursue strategies that will strengthen the support for our teachers, staff, para-educators, parents, administrators, and most importantly our children. Education is opportunity and I will work tirelessly to ensure that everyone is able to obtain this fundamental right.
