On October 28 our speakers will be Mikki Cichocki and Travon Martin, Candidates for San Bernadino City Unified School District.
From a story in the San Bernardino American News:
Mikki Cichocki started Cal Poly Pomona as a business major and never expected to teach. But she soon changed her major to liberal arts, although still envisioning a business-related career. After graduation, she went to work for Xerox but then took a position as an instructional aide and substitute teacher. She loved it.
“When the district opened up a full-time teaching position, I applied and was selected to teach first-graders at Arrowhead Elementary,” said Cichocki. “I was hooked, I knew I had found my calling.”
The long list of those who have endorsed Mikki Cichocki for school board includes such notables as former San Bernardino County Superintendent of Schools Herb Fischer, current Superintendent Theodore “Ted” Alejandre and former SBCUSD Board Member Lynda Savage, as well as the San Bernardino Teachers Association and the Inland Empire Labor Council.
Travon Martin is the winner of the school district’s Golden Apple Award.
The tribute published by the school district states:
Travon is known as a reliable employee who is passionate about improving his community, starting with children. When it comes to serving students and families, Travon’s determination and tenacity has helped bring about a significant increase in parent engagement. He is an enthusiastic servant leader who is compassionate when working with families to help them navigate the educational system. Travon dedicates countless hours of his own time to mentor elementary and middle school students who need a positive role model. With his ubiquitous smile and his commitment to excellence, Travon Martin is truly Making Hope Happen.
