It matters to me that people feel comfortable at their school

“It matters to me that people feel comfortable at their school. The walls and the floors are the first thing you see in an establishment and how clean they are shapes how you judge the place. Parents coming here deciding whether to support their kids coming here don’t want to spend money on a school that is dirty. I’ve been a part of this community and neighborhood since 1980. I attended Garfield Elementary. But when I first started working here, even though I was working full time 40 hours a week, I didn’t have enough saved to pay for housing in Seattle so I was homeless. Your living conditions really impact how you feel about yourself and how well you can do your work. People here trust me to do a good job. I just can’t go somewhere else to get any job. I want to be able to live here and have an impact on our community.”
