Since early March, we’ve been asking readers to let us know what they want incoming San Diego Unified School District Superintendent Cindy Marten to focus on. You can see the growing collection of photo messages from people who care about the future of the school district on our “Dear Superintendent …” Tumblr.

Last week at our One Voice at a Time chat with Marten, we collected quite a few messages. Below are the first couple I took that we’ve published; keep an eye out for more soon.

We’d love to hear from more of you, too: Simply send in a photo of yourself holding a note with your message. Include your full name and the neighborhood you live in. You can email or submit an entry directly on Tumblr. By submitting a photo to us, you’re allowing Voice of San Diego to use the image in any or all of its publications.
