It is with great enthusiasm that I endorse Sharon Tanenbaum Kraus for Board of Education.

I have known Sharon for over eight years in my capacity as Director of the Nursery at Our Lady of Sorrows where her kids attended and one currently enrolled in our program. When I first met Sharon I knew immediately that she would be an ally, she was warm, very easy to talk to and I knew right then she would be one of my go-to Parent Liaisons. 

Sharon is always there to lend a helping hand, whenever I would reach out for help her response was always “sure, when do you need it done.” I could always rely on Sharon to get things done. She would reach out to potential new families selling our program, telling them of her experience at the Nursery and why they should enroll in the Nursery. Her recruiting has gained us many new families, and we are forever grateful.

She cares about people not just because she says it but it shows up in her random acts of kindness, always making sure everybody is included.  She is very passionate, a great listener, she knows how to problem solve and making sure that everyone involve benefits. Sharon is a natural leader. She has the ability to plan and execute accurately and quickly as she has done so many times as one of our parent representatives.

I have no doubt that Sharon will be an exceptional asset to the Board of Education; you can rest assured that she will do what’s right, and what works best for the children.
