To the Editor:
I am writing to express my support for Karen Hosking as a candidate for the Watertown Board of Education. I met Karen more than 40 years ago when I first moved to Watertown. Throughout those years I saw Karen interact and work with students and parents in many capacities.
She listened to concerns thoughtfully and with empathy, striving to make others feel valuable and validated. I saw Karen earn the respect of students, parents and staff within the schools.
Karen always went above and beyond in her work for our school community. Whatever role she took on, be it teacher, counselor, advisor or volunteer, she tackled it with a strong work ethic and a passion for the education of the children in our community.
Now she brings that vision, expertise and dedication to the Watertown Board of Education.
Watertown is lucky to have such an outstanding individual working for our community. I hope you will join me in voting for Karen in this next election so her hard work can continue to support and enrich our Watertown School System.
