As a parent, Lisa was successful in getting American Sign Language instituted as a course of study at CHS. This is the sort of inclusive, forward thinking we need guiding the education of our children. I wholeheartedly endorse Lisa Larson-Torres for Charlottesville City School Board.
Lisa will be as strong an advocate for all children in Charlottesville, as she has been for her own daughter. She knows how to get things done and won't stop until she has accomplished her goals
As an educator and parent I have seen firsthand Lisa's commitment and steadfastness as it pertains to advocating and cheerleading for expanded programs in the school system. She is a strong advocate for understanding and working with learning disabilities; led the fight to get ASL on the curriculum; and has the ability to get things done in a thoughtful, quiet yet persistent and respectful manner. We heartily endorse her candidacy!
