Mary Anne Van Zuyle is smart, engaged, no-nonsense, fair, and kind, and she has more energy than anyone I know. She is fearless about taking on big problems and committed to working to provide a quality education for all students, and I mean ALL—she truly cares about underperforming students as well as GATE kids. She won’t back down or shy away from complicated issues and has the intelligence, analytical tools, and ability to work with others needed to find solutions to our difficult problems and disagreements. She will work with both teachers—whom she respects as the caring professionals they are—and parents, while supporting all students and fighting for our public schools.
