Jim Kinard is committed to providing a quality education for every student in Ceres Unified School District.
As a school nurse, I worked with Jim for more than 16 years at Westport School and found him to be a dedicated and caring teacher who worked well with students, parents and staff. He demonstrated leadership ability in and out of the classroom, as evidenced by his selection as a mentor teacher and interim principal. Jim has the ability to listen to concerns, identify and research key issues and make sound decisions.
These same qualities that made him an excellent teacher will enable Jim to serve the community well as a member of the school board.
