Letter: Landen has earned another term

To the editor:

I am writing to express my support for Jaren Landen for another term on the Swampscott School Committee. I strongly believe that Jaren’s tireless efforts and focused commitment to improving the quality of our children’s Swampscott school experience have earned her another term.

Through our discussions, it is clear to me, that to her position on the School Committee, Jaren brings not only her passion for improving our school system, but also an “out of the box” approach to solving problems. Her experience working as a neuroscientist in the pharmaceutical industry provides her with a unique perspective for confronting challenging issues and initiating improvements to our school district. Personally, I know my children have benefited from two enrichment programs that Jaren is directly responsible for bringing to Swampscott. Odyssey of the Mind and KnowAtom are perfect examples of Jaren’s dedication to raising the bar for the Swampscott school system.

Each time I speak with Jaren, I am amazed at the amount of time and energy she devotes to her position on the school board. I feel lucky to have someone with Jaren’s intellect, passion and determination representing the interests of my children in such an important position. I am very hopeful that she will be able to continue her work, and in turn, Swampscott’s school district will be able to provide the best education possible to all of our children.
