Just interviewed Kevin Beiser, who was recently elected to the San Diego Unified School District Board of Trustees.

One word to describe him: Passionate.

He's passionate about public education, students, parents, teachers. He's passionate about keeping budget cuts away from the classroom.

He lives on the other side of Mission Village, where I live, closer to Murray Ridge and I-805.

He's a highly decorated math teacher who works at Granger Junior High School in National City. He's also the first openly gay man to be elected to the San Diego School Board.

He's vowing to shake things up in the school district in support of our kids and do everything he can to get Sacramento's attention to protect public education.

I'm writing profiles of Beiser and the other new trustee, Scott Barnett, for La Jolla Patch.com.

He invited me to his home for a victory celebration this week. I think I'll drop by and introduce myself in person. -Leonel Sanchez-
