I truly believe Ernest Koeppen will not only bring a fresh perspective to the school board; he has done his due diligence with research, and has ideas on how to move forward in these troubling times.
As a former teacher in La Cañada for 10 years, I used to question Koeppen when he was critical of the schools. However, my attitude soon changed when he followed up his comments with very constructive, practical solutions. I realized he wasn’t critical, he was concerned and he had analyzed.
Koeppen has examined obstacles objectively and is very prepared to be a School Board member. Not only is he ready with ideas, he has enthusiasm, passion and desire for what lies ahead.
